Mr DAVIDSON (DAWSON, QUEENSLAND) (Postmaster-General) - 1 have not seen the press statement to which the honorable member for Kingston refers, but I can assure him that there has been no change in the frequencies of television stations in the Adelaide area of South Australia. Therefore, it is entirely unnecessary to make alterations to existing television receivers. Any one who says that television receivers should be changed immediately to receive the thirteen channels is not stating the position correctly. In the future - but certainly not for some years - as television develops in South Australia, it may be necessary to utilize some of the three new channels. There are one or two areas on the east coast of Australia in which that is necessary now, but the use of new channels in other areas is a matter for consideration at some time well in the future. As I said at the beginning of my reply, there is at present no need to alter receiving sets in Adelaide, nor will there be any need to do so for some very considerable time.
