Television. (Question No. 1557.)


Mr Collard d asked the Postmaster-

General, upon notice -

1.   Will it be necessary for the broad band communication system between Perth and Adelaide to be completed before it can be used as a medium to establish television in the Kalgoorlie district or would completion of the system between Perth and its nearest point to Kalgoorlie be sufficient for this purpose?

2.   If completion of the system between Perth and its nearest point to Kalgoorlie would be sufficient, will he ensure that the system is commenced from the Perth end so that Kalgoorlie may obtain a television service at an earlier stage than would otherwise be the case?


Mr Hulme - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follows -

1.   As indicated in my reply to the honorable member's question No. 1298 on the 23rd September 1965, the establishment of a television transmitting station at Kalgoorlie is not necessarily related to the construction of the broad band communication system between Perth and Adelaide. However, if it is decided to establish a television transmitter at Kalgoorlie, a television relay could be provided between Perth and Kalgoorlie by the addition of equipment to the broad band system as soon as that portion of the Perth-Adelaide system is completed.

2.   Tenders for the construction of the PerthAdelaide broad band system have been received and are being examined by the Department. When a decision has been reached on the system to be installed, all relevant factors will be taken into account in deciding the method of installation, including the possibility of providing television relay facilities between Perth and Kalgoorlie.
