Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I listened attentively to what Senator Spicer had to say, but this bill amends the principal act in several directions. We want it to be made mandatory that the commission shall provide news services. If the principal act provides for what I am now asking, that provision has been shamefully neglected by the commission. We wish to take advantage of this clause to ensure that the programmes shall include news services. If we cannot have that provision inserted we shall vote against the clause.

Question put -

That the words proposed to be inserted be inserted (Senator Collings's amendment).
