Senator GUILFOYLE (VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister for the Media. It is a fact that the bearer facilities available to television stations between Sydney and Brisbane are totally unreliable and frequently interrupt the transmission of news and news comment? With the current emphasis on news and current affairs programs, when will this position be rectified?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - I have received an occasional complaint that from time to time there are difficulties encountered with the bearer facilities. However, the matter of rectification is one for my colleague, the PostmasterGeneral. Officers of my Department are having discussions with officers of the PostmasterGeneral's Department about the matter.
