Mr DAVIDSON - I am afraid I cannot agree with the contention in the latter part of the honorable member's question - that people are being required to pay for something which they do not receive. The position is that before a person outlays, say, some £200 for a television set and possibly something over £100 for aerials, it is to be expected that he will make some investigation of the type of service which he is likely to receive. If, having made that investigation, he is then prepared to outlay between £200 and £300, I do not think it can be logically contended that there is justification for the remission of a £5 fee.
