Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I can advise the honourable senator, firstly, that the Postmaster-General's Department is responsible for the installation of the necessary equipment to establish these stations. The station at Miles commenced operating on 30 November; the one at Roma is due to commence operating on 14 December; and the one at Emerald is due to commence operating, I think, a week later on 2 1 December. I wrote to the Federal members of Parliament representing the electorates in which those towns are located earlier this week in relation to these stations. I understand that provided there are no technical difficulties the Australian Broadcasting Commission will be transmitting programs on those dates to the towns involved and that the programs will be relayed from the national television service in Brisbane.
