Senator ALSTON (9.06 p.m.) —I move:

  After clause 45, page 16, insert the following clause:

  Community information

  "45A. The Board must develop and publicise guidelines on the kinds of community information or community promotional material that it is prepared to broadcast.".

This amendment would require the board to develop and publicise guidelines on the kind of community information or community promotional material that it is prepared to broadcast. We think that would be of assistance in enabling the public at large, and presumably potential broadcasters in particular, to know in advance just what types of programming and material are likely to be available. Therefore, we think that this is in the interests of SBS as well as of the community.
