Mr DAVIDSON - The honorable member for Mallee asks whether attention will be given to his advocacy. Of course, it is well known that complete attention is always given to the matters which he so actively pursues and advocates. The honorable member has referred to the site of the television station for Bendigo, and more or less the same remarks which I made in reply to the honorable member for EdenMonaro apply to that question. These are matters which are under consideration. When I made my announcement in the House regarding television licences I stated that the final determination of sites was left to a sub-committee of Cabinet, after consultation with the Postmaster-General's Department. I expect the finalization of most of these matters in about a week or so. Such problems as the honorable member for Mallee has brought forward will receive full consideration. The main consideration always, after the engineers have taken the field strengths from the various proposed sites and determined what site will give the best coverage, is which site is most suitable. That is the site which will be chosen.
