Thursday, 29 October 1931

Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I with to ask the Postmaster-General a question with reference to the following statement by him on the 2nd October, 1931, and recorded in Hansard, at page 457 :-

It may be of interest to record that the best offers which could bc obtained for the rapid construction of broadcasting stations of similar capacity, (to the proposed new station for Perth) varied from six to twelve months.

Will the Postmaster-General state when and from whom such offers were received ? Will he explain in detail what is actually being done to justify his statement that " the department is pressing forward with all phases of the work, and no time will be lost in making the station available for service"? When does the honorable gentleman anticipate that tenders will be called for the transmitting equipment?
