Senator SPICER (Victoria) .- I direct the attention of the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Collings) to the provisions of section 22 of the principal act -

The Commission may collect in such manner as it thinks fit news and information relating to current events in any part of the world and may subscribe to news agencies.

I suggest that what the honorable senator has in mind is already provided for. The powers of the commission under section 22 to collect news are unlimited. It is in the exercise of those powers that the commission provides its news services.

Suggest corrections
