Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) (Minister for Supply and Development) . - I accept the honorable member's suggestion. I move -

That in sub-clause (1.), paragraph (d), the following amendments be made: - Leave out " one month ", insert " three months " ; after " profit " insert " to the person operating the station " ; leave out " of the station during that year ", insert " , from the operations of the station during that year, of the person operating the station ".

Some commercial stations are, with the approval of the Minister, operated by persons other than the licensee. The purpose of the amendments is to make it obligatory on such persons to furnish statutory declarations concerning the financial result of the operations of the stations concerned.

Mr Holt - Why does the Government want that information?

Mr BEASLEY - It is needed in connexion with some charges to be imposed on commercial broadcasting stations under another bill.
