Mr Lionel Bowen (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It is true that the honourable member for Angas (Mr Giles) did raise the matter of supplements. I gave an answer which apparently the honourable member has not had a chance to digest. My understanding is that my predecessor agreed to the proposal that the honourable member has mentioned in regard to the inclusion of supplements in country newspapers. What I endeavoured to convey in the previous debate was that my predecessor did nothing about altering the regulations. It is not left to the discretion of the Postmaster-General. It is not left to me to do this. It is subject to an alteration of the regulations and as such it has to go through the Parliament. That is a matter of policy. At this stage I would not want to give any answer.

Amendments agreed to.

Resolution reported; report adopted.
