Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - I assure the honorable member that I did not hear the broadcast at supper time last night. Nor have I heard the serial at any time since it has been on the air. I do not acknowledge, that it is appropriate that radio scripts should be used as a propaganda medium over 2BL, or national stations, generally.

Mr Holt - Propaganda is broadcast from this House.

Mr CHIFLEY - One does not expect any better from this House. But one does expect that the national broadcasting stations will refrain from making comments which might be regarded as providing fuel for attacks on the Government by the Opposition, no matter what government is in power. Perhaps all this is a part of the political game. I shall have, inquiries made, and request national broadcasting stations to refrain from doing things of this character, or being a party to their being done.
