Senator COLLINGS - I ask the Leader of the Senate the following questions: - (1) Is he aware that in musical circles in Sydney, and in other capital cities, there is a considerable volume of opinion in favour of retaining the services of Dr. Malcolm Sargent, the distinguished visiting conductor, now in Australia under engagement to the Australian Broadcasting Commission? (2) Is he aware that representations to this effect have been made to the Australian Broadcasting Commission? (3) Will he call for a report from the Australian Broadcasting Commission to ascertain (a) whether such representations have been made; (b) what answers, if any, have been given to such representations? (4)

As Dr. Malcolm Sargent's engagement with the Australian Broadcasting Commission will tormina to shortly, will he treat this matter as urgent?
