1.   In view of the limited amount of television advertising within the Brisbane viewing area, will the Postmaster-General cancel the licence issued for a third commercial television station to be operated in that city?

2.   Has the Postmaster-General been advised that if three commercial stations operate in Brisbane it will be necessary for them to exhibit the cheapest and poorest films to avoid bankruptcy?
