Mr Bungey asked the Minister for Post and Telecommunications, upon notice:

What action has been taken with a view to providing adequate national television reception to the following Shires in Western Australia- Bruce Rock, Esperance, Kondinin, Kulin, Lake Grace, Narembeen and Ravensthorpe.

Mr ERIC ROBINSON (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

There are currently no plans for the improvement or extension of national television service to the Shires in question. The greater part of the Shire of Bruce Rock should receive an adequate service from national station ABCW-4 and Esperance and its immediate environs are served by national station ABEW- 10.

Under the new arrangements for the administration of broadcasting, Government policy regarding the future of broadcasting and television services will come under review.
