Mr BUCHANAN (MCMILLAN, VICTORIA) - Has the PostmasterGeneral seen the many letters in the daily Press from correspondents who, having heard modern hi-fidelity radio reception overseas free of noise and static, are now calling for the provision of frequency modulation broadcasting in Australia, strongly supported by the top executives of the Australian radio and electronics industries? For how much longer can listeners be denied the sound quality that is now heard only by the operators in the station control rooms before it is distorted in the course of reception? Will the Postmaster-General revive the plans of 1954 to establish frequency modulation transmitters at each national television station and so enable Australians to enjoy the latest overseas standards, including the advantages of stereo sound?
