Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - J ask the PostmasterGeneral a question concerning the direction which was received by the Australian Broadcasting Commission a week ago from him to reduce expenditure on television current affairs programmes by $250,000 a year. Since the Broadcasting and Television Act requires the Minister to report in writing such ministerial directions to both Houses, 1 ask him whether he will do so in sufficient time for the Houses to consider and debate this punitive action before the Houses adjourn for the winter recess?
