Senator SPICER (Victoria) .- I should like to have more information about these proposed advisory committees. Under the existing act the Australian Broadcasting Commission is empowered to appoint State Advisory Committees, and such committees have been appointed in some of the States. Tim clause proposes to alter the law by giving that power to the Postmaster-General instead of to the commission. I should like to know the reason for the alteration. Another feature of the clause is that it now makes it mandatory for the Minister to appoint State Broadcasting Advisory Committees. Such a clause should also provide for the constitution of these committees. That should not he left indefinite.
