Mr HAYLEN (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister ever listenedto the serial " The Lawsons", which is broadcast over station 2BL? It purports to be an Australian play depicting the Australian way of life, and the performance is acombination of the worst features of Oxford and adenoids.' Did the right honorable gentleman hear the broadcast over station 2BL at supper time last night. recounting the attempt of the Lawson family to huy a business from a man named Sorenson, who gave as his reason for selling, high taxation and industrial unrest? Is this the political news which the Liberals complain is broadcast by the Australian Broadcasting Commission ? Will the right honorable gentleman ascertain, if possible, how much is paid to "stooges" to' write such attacks on the Government into the scripts of the Australian Broadcasting Commission'?
