Mr DAVIDSON - The question of broadcasts in foreign languages has been dealt with on several occasions during the last two or three years by the Australian Broadcasting Control Board. The board has certain authority in matters such as this. It has held discussions from time to time with the Australian Federation of Commercial Broadcasting Stations and interested licensees, with the result that a certain procedure has been laid down. I have not all the details of that procedure in my mind at the moment, but it relates particularly to certain things like religious services and sometimes services which are designed for instructional purposes. However, I shall be glad to look into the matter and give the honorable member full particulars of the use which is permitted to be made of foreign languages in broadcasts.
