1.   What are the names of persons employed by the Australian Broadcasting Commission in broadcasting statements on foreign affairs?

2.   Which of them are (a) foreigners (b) naturalized British subjects, and (c) British subjects ?

3.   What are the qualifications for the work possessed by those referred to in (a) and (b) above ?

Mr Harrison - The information is being obtained.

On the 10th May, the honorable member for Balaclava (Mr. White) asked the following question, without notice: -

Will the Postmaster-General inform the House as to whether projected appointments to the Australian Broadcasting Commission, other than clerical appointments, are advertised? If they are not, why?

The following information has now been furnished by the Australian Broadcasting Commission : -

The commission's policy, generally speaking, is to advertise when persons are required to fill certain positions. Recently advertisements were inserted in the press in all States inviting applications for the position of listening group organizer in New South Wales and for the position of talks and schools broadcast officer in South Australia. There are occasions when the position to be filled is of a specialized nature, and it has been possible to select some one with the requisite qualifications without advertising the position in the press.
