Mr COLLARD (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask the PostmasterGeneral a question. Did he earlier this year say that if areas such as Mount lsa, Kalgoolie and Geraldton are to be provided with a television service it could only be on the basis of the provision of national stations? Has the Minister also said that he will not recommend the expenditure of the finance required to set up conventional high powered national stations in these areas? Did he say also that translators did not appear to be the solution to the problem because of the distance from the nearest high powered station? If so, does it follow that television by means of package stations is the best that may be expected from this Government? If so, why should there be any further delay in providing such a service to the areas I have mentioned?
