Mr DALY (MARTIN, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Many schools in New South Wales have been provided with radio receiving sets by Parents and Citizens Associations. The usual listeners' licence-fee hasto be paid in respect of these sets. As they are used for educational purposes, will the Minister representing the Postmaster-General consider an amendment of the broadcasting regulations to provide for listeners' licences to be issued free of charge in all such cases ?

Mr.CAL WELL.- This matter is covered by the Australian Broadcasting Act, not by any regulations made under it. A bill to amend the act is to be introduced before the end of the session and I shall ask the Postmaster-General to consider the honorable gentleman's representations when framing the measure. It may be possible to incorporate his suggestion in the amending legislation.
