30 March 1976 .

Press Statement No

St a a m e n t by' the Hon . E.G. VJhitiarn, Q.C. , Μ . P .

' The statement by Mr MacKellar and Mr Robinson

clots nothing to clarify the future of ethnic r a d i o . ' The Governments,lias dodged a decision.

■ Ethnic radio stations have been given funds

for only six months du r a t i o n . No radio station

can plan its programs on this b a s i s .

The Gove r n m e n t ’s announcement is nothing more than a stay of execution for ethnic radio and the

hundreds of thousands of people who depend on·it for their staple entertainment and information.
