Mr COLEMAN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Prime Mini nster, upon notice -

Having regard to the following extract from the report of the Royal Commission on Wireless, viz. : - Considerable objection has been expressed to direct and indirect advertising by " A " class broadcasting stations. As " A " class broadcasting stations receive revenue from listeners' fees, and "B" class stations receive no such revenue, the Commission is of opinion that all forms of advertising by " A " class stations in States where " B " class stations are operating should be prohibited, and in all cases strictly regulated. Will the Government take immediate steps to prohibit direct and indirect advertising by " A " class stations, and so enable " B " class stations to operate on a better and more equitable financial basis?
