Mr DAVIDSON - I do not profess to be able to answer the honorable member's question in the exact terms he used, but as he asked me to took into it some weeks ago 1 can say that it is quite practicable for Australia, within the limits of the international agreement, to make certain variations of the channels used by amateur radio enthusiasts. Such variations are, in fact, made from time to time. As for the use of bands, certain channels in the band to which he refers have already been allotted to the broadcasting stations and, therefore, in the absence of a further close look at those channels I would say that his proposal is impracticable. I assure him that the possibility of further allocations will be discussed, along with the requirements of other users of the spectrum, at the next international conference.
