Mr DAVIDSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - I can assure the honorable member, asI have stated on a number of occasions in this chamber, that the originalpolicy determined and announced by the Governmentregarding thespread of television has not changed. That is to say, the Government still believes that television should be extended by the provision of a dual service - a national service and a commercial service. That is the system that has operated so well in the broadcasting field. Therefore, the Government will proceed from time to time in stages, as is the case now, to provide national stations, and the commercial stations will be provided by private enterprise.
