Mr DAVIDSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - Within a week 1 intend to issue a statement, a copy of which will be sent to all honorable members, relating to frequency allocations, sites and so on, so that honorable members will be kept in touch with developments in this phase of television. I have been informed by Professor Huxley, who is chairman of the frequency review committee, that the thirteen channels in the very high frequency band, which we have been seeking for television, will be available. In my statement I shall give greater detail than I am giving now because I am still awaiting information from the Australian Broadcasting Control Board on how those channels will be allocated. Nevertheless, the matter is proceeding satisfactorily. I have been informed that the future requirements of television will be met in the very higi frequency band. The actual allocation of frequencies to various stations is a matter to which the board is now applying itself.
