Senator FOLL - The answers to the honorable senator's questions are as follows : -

1.   The newspapers of Australia do not pay the Department of Information for the privilege of publishing photographs supplied by the department.

2.   The Australian commercial B class broad- . casting stations do not pay the Department of Information for the privilege of broadcasting material supplied by the department.

I desire to add that the department regards the publication of these photographs to be of great value as propaganda, and as a means of disseminating information. The B class radio stations also are assisting the war effort considerably by arranging for free broadcasts in favour of recruiting, the value of which cannot be assessed in terms of money.
