Mr HAWORTH (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - I wish to ask the Postmaster-General a question concerning the operation of the Broadcasting and Television Act. Is it correct that the Australian Broadcasting Control Board has forced certain public companies to sell shares that were purchased in associated companies before the Broadcasting and Television Act was amended? Is not the legislation under which the Board has taken this action retrospective law and against the spirit of all legislative action?

Suggest corrections
