Mr GUY asked the PostmasterGeneral,upon notice -

1.   Will he give the names and localities of the sixteen to eighteen additional broadcasting stations in the various States which it was proposed to establish under the programme of construction prepared in 1929?

2.   Will he also name the stations already installed in accordance with the abovementioned programme?

Mr FENTON - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   The stations are intended to be erected in areas at present inadequately provided for, but the localities are not finally determined, as it is preferable for the department to be guided to some extent by the experience resulting from each new station brought into service. The honorable member may be interested to know that the studies indicate the necessity for two stations of appreciable power to serve

Tasmania, and it is intended that Tasmania shall benefit immediately any funds can he made available for proceeding with the general programme.

2.   The stations so far installed are 4RK Rockhampton, 2NC Newcastle, 2CO Corowa and 5CK Crystal Brook.
