Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Whilst the department is anxious to do all that is possible to arrange for duplicate stations in capital cities to provide alternative programmes, it is more important to ensure a reasonably good service to listeners in other parts of the Commonwealth, where reception from even one station is at present precarious and unsatisfactory. It is not proposed at the moment, therefore, to proceed with, the erection of an additional station at Perth. The new south-west regional station, which will be opened in the near future will have a wide coverage, and may, to some extent, meet the requirements which the honorable senator has in view.
