Mr JOLLY (Lilley) .- It would be impossible for any broadcasting company within one month after the 30th June to comply with subclause 1 d. The Australian Broadcasting Commission has been allowed six months in which to fulfil a somewhat similar obligation. The commercial stations should be allowed at least three months in which to prepare the information which they are required to furnish under this provision. Another point that strikes me is the fact that, whereas the commission will now be required to furnish a statement of revenue and expenditure, instead of a profit and loss account, the commercial stations are to be required to furnish profit and loss accounts.

Mr Calwell - Hear, hear! There is a good reason for that.

Mr JOLLY - I have no objection to it.

Sir Frederick Stewart - The accounts for June would not be collected until the end of July.
