Dismissal,, by the Australian Broadcasting Commission.

Mi-. HAYLEN". - Is-the Minister representing the- Postmaster-General awarethat a ranking journalist employed by the Australian Broadcasting Commission has been dismissed for having used offensive words? I should like to point out, that these offensive words were notwritten but were spoken to the general manager of the Australian BroadcastingCommission. In- view of the fact that the penalty, imposed in the police court for offensive words ranges between £5 and £20 and this- man is in receipt of a salary of approximately £900 per annum, will the Minister- ask the Postmaster-General to institute an inquiry as to the justice of the sentence ?
