Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) -

Has the Attorney-General yet received a report on the meeting of the committee of Government experts that discussed the problems arising from broadcasting via space satellites at a conference held at Lucerne in May of this year at which Australia was represented by an officer of his Department? Was any convention drawn up by the committee? Does the Minister intend to report to the Parliament on the results of the conference or is this another matter to be kept away from the general public?

Senator GREENWOOD - I do not think that this is a matter in which the general public has a great deal of interest although I appreciate that persons vitally concerned do have that interest. I know that they have been kept well informed of the general preparations for this conference. I am unable to recall the details. T ask the honourable senator to put the question on the notice paper.
