Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Postmaster-General. Is he aware that on several occasions in this House I have advocated that the transmitter of the new television station in the Bendigo, Victoria, area should be placed as far northwest as possible from Bendigo, while at the same time giving that city an effective coverage? Does he know that a transmitter north-west of Bendigo would encompass an important part of north-western Victoria and part of the Riverina and would be much more acceptable than the site which at present appears to be favoured and which would, if adopted, to some extent duplicate coverage by other existing and proposed television stations? Will he give further urgent consideration to my advocacy?
