Mr DAVIDSON - The honorable member, having seen the report of the Australian Broadcasting Control Board, will know that the recommendation, though not finally accepted, is for a site to be chosen on Black. Mountain for the Canberra television service-. I have been discussing this whole- question of sites during the week-end with members of the board and with officers of my department. It has not yet been finally determined, but I have found, as I mentioned to the honorable member and certain gentlemen whom he brought to see me some time ago about this site, that the Canberra area - that is, the wider area rather than the Canberra city area - is not an easy area in- which- to choose a site for the transmitter. There are certain difficult problems associated with it which have not yet been quite solved. The object is to give as wide a service as possible to the greatest number of people, and that we will attempt to achieve in. the final determination.
