Mr HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - 1 think there would be a lot of members in this House who would not be very interested in the televising of a rugby league match. The responsibility for selling the rights of the replay telecast of any football match rests with the organisation concerned. In this case it is the Australian rugby league organisation. As I understand the position, the rights have been sold to a commercial station for SI 5,000. As a result a commercial station will telecast the replay in Brisbane. The Australian Broadcasting Commission is negotiating with the commercial station for the purchase of the rights for Queensland regional stations. I understand also thaI there will be replays in Sydney. I can give no further information. I assure honourable members that the ABC has done its best, with limited success to this moment.
