Mr Makin n asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Are B class broadcasting stations licensed annually ?

2.   Do any licences extend for more than a year?

3.   Has the Government ever considered taking over the B class stations?

Mr Archie Cameron - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follows: - 1 and 2. Under the Wireless Telegraphy Regulations broadcasting station licences may be granted for an initial period not exceeding three years, and they may be renewed thereafter at the discretion of the PostmasterGeneral for periods not exceeding one year. The usual practice is to grant the initial licence for a period of two years, and to grant annual renewals.

3.   No.
