Mr JULL (BOWMAN, QUEENSLAND) - Could the Minister for Post and Telecommunications tell the House what aspects of the Green report are to be instituted immediately by the Government? Has the Minister directed his Department to proceed with any other proposals of the report? Has a senior officer of his Department called an interdepartmental meeting for 2 December to establish the guidelines for the granting of licences for frequency modulation radio stations in accordance with the Green report recommendations?

Mr Keating - I take a point of order. This will be the second announcement by a Minister of policy or detail at question time. I put it to you that Ministers should give statements to the Parliament on decisions the Government has taken and not use question time to advantage supporters by announcements of policy.
