Mr LAZZARINI (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister Assisting the Treasurer) - At the request of the service chiefs, the brown-out has been enforced in capital cities and in towns and districts situated within 100 miles of the coast. Authority to order measures for the purpose of damping down sky-glow has been vested in State Premiers. In the Australian Capital Territory, the Minister for the Interior exercises that authority.

Mr Spender - Is it not a black? out?

Mr LAZZARINI - I have described it as a brown-out. I shall bring the honorable member's question to the notice of the Minister for the Interior with a view to ascertaining whether the brownout restrictions in Canberra can be relaxed.
