Mr CURTIN (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Prime Minister) -The answer to the first part of the honorable gentleman's question is " No". The Australian Broadcasting Commission is a Commonwealth instrumentality, and has not been captured by any special interests in Australia. I am not able to answer the second part of the question, becauseI. have no knowledge of the circumstances; but I shall have the matter explained to me, and shall then let the honorable gentleman know whether or not I consider that the statement of the commission is puerile.
