Senator TOOHEY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I preface my question to the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral by stating that early in this sessional period I asked the Minister whether something could be done to improve television reception in the upper Murray area of South Australia and that shortly after asking that question I received from a firm named Western Telonics a letter which stated that the firm had technical equipment which would provide television reception of city quality for any towns in this area, and that this equipment had been inspected by and had met with the approval of the Australian Broadcasting

Control Board. The letter also stated that engineers of the Postmaster-General's Department had expressed interest in the equipment. Will the Minister now request the Postmaster-General to submit a report on the matter so that the Parliament will be able to determine whether there is any substance in the firm's claim and, if there is, whether the use of such equipment would be economically practicable?
