Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The same thing applies. One does not have to be a foreigner to be able to teach a foreign language. The British atmosphere must be preserved at all costs. I should hate to think that the conditions which apply in European broadcasting systems could ever be introduced in Australia. I am sure that on reflection the honorable member for Reid (Mr. Morgan) will not press his amendment.

Mr Morgan - According to the honorable member, citizens of the United States of America are good enough to fight for us, but not good enough to be employed in our broadcasting service.

Mr HARRISON - The honorable member cannot side-track me. Other people besides citizens of the United States of America speak the English language. History is full of instances of the friends of to-day becoming the enemies of to-morrow. We can take no chances with such an important national medium as the broadcasting service. The clause should not be amended.
