Mr DAVIDSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - On several occasions in this chamber I have replied to questions on this subject asked by the honorable member for Farrer and a number of other representatives interested in this matter, and the position is still as 1 outlined it previously. During the recess, the Australian Broadcasting Control Board, the PostmasterGeneral's Department and the Australian Broadcasting Commission have been moving rapidly towards the stage where the implementation of phase three will be well under way. As I have stated previously, as soon as the Australian Broadcasting Control Board has finalized still existent problems such as frequencies - the allocation of sites has been determined - access roads and the amount of contribution by licensees, which will be in the near future, it will apply itself to the determination of the fourth phase. I cannot lay down any specific time when this will be done, such as a month or two months, but I can assure the honorable member that decisions will not be delayed unduly.
