Thank you for your letter of 21st January in which you offer further comments on certain of the broadcast news sessions.

From its terms it is evident that you 'assume that the commission is entirely responsible for all broadcasts that are made from its stations. This is not so. The act under which the commission works gives an overriding authority to the Government through the Minister. In these circumstances, I am sure you will understand that it would be improper for me either to indicate whether, and, if so, to what extent, such authority is exercised, or to express an opinion on the merits of the broadcasts to which you take exception.

Mr Curtin - Where is there a reference to Mr. Churchill in what the honorable member has read?
