Mr SHERRY (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - I ask the PostmasterGeneral a question about his Press statement of 27th May last. Does he agree with the Chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Commission, Sir Robert Madwick. who most emphatically denied that the ABC spent money carelessly in current affairs programmes? Does he support the Chairman's expressed view that he could not recall a previous occasion when a PostmasterGeneral had made such a charge? ls not a charge of this nature a grave reflection on the Commission's integrity?

Mr Jess - Nuts.

Mr SHERRY - A very intelligent remark. Will the Postmaster-General define what he means when he says that the ABC should have almost complete autonomy in programming?
