Senator McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - It doe3 not matter how many miles a station is from the persons who listen in. The quality of the reception depends on the conductivity of the earth and on the synchronization of the earth ray and the sky ray. On that point, reception at Canberra has been mentioned, and one honorable senator referred to the density of the A class stations of Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia. In this city distance does not matter much. I understand that the 'reception in (Jan.berra of Station 7NT Launceston is excellent.

Canberra presents special difficulties, but although I do not like making promises, I can promise better reception here iri the near future. In conclusion, I wish to assure Senator Cooper once more that from the reports we have received from our scientific advisers, it is apparent that the western districts of Queensland will be efficiently served by the Broken Hill station.
