Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- Obviously^ Senator Allan MacDonald has no ' conception of the magnitude of the work which the Broadcasting Committee has done, otherwise he would not have made the suggestions which he has voiced this afternoon. It is true that the committee did not visit Western Australia, but it is equally true that the whole committee did not visit any of the other States. Nevertheless the committee heard a lot of evidence on behalf of Western Australia, and when its report is presented the honorable senator will see that that State has not been overlooked. The committee has completed its investigations, and had the Parliament not assembled until the 11th March, as was intended, its report would have been ready to table on that date. The earlier meeting of the " Parliament has meant that the committee has not had sufficient time to present its report, even in typewritten form. The report, which is long and comprehensive, is really a compendium on broadcasting from the time that I convened the first meeting of the committee in Melbourne until the present day.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
