Mr SHERRY (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - I address my question to the Postmaster-General. Does he recollect stating in his address to the Australian Broadcasting Commission Staff Association 1967 Federal Conference that programme development, programme organisation and gathering each new station into the fold was the task of the ABC and that the job had been done magnificently? In what manner has his administration of the ABC deteriorated so gravely in 2 short years that he now expresses concern about its performance? Will he please define what he means when he says that the Commission should have 'almost' complete autonomy in its programming?
