Senator HERBERT HAYS (Tasmania) . - If the Government is prepared to adopt the principle that a representative of Labour should be appointed as a member of the Australian Broadcasting Commission, I suggestthat the other six members should each represent a State. The commission should he an Australianwide organization. In each State there are persons competent and willing to serve on the commission. We should do our utmost to remove the impression in several of the States that national broadcasting is a monopoly of the two largest eastern cities. If the Government decides to give Labour representation on the commission, it should invite the Labour movement to submit a panel of names from which the Government could select a member.

Question put -

That the clause stand as printed.
