Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct the attention of the Postmaster-General to a paragraph which appears on page 44 of the last annual report of the Australian Broadcasting Commission to the effect that extensive inquiries by the commission had revealed that it was paying much higher rates for performing rights to the Performing Right Association than the rates paid for similar facilities by broadcasting organizations in other parts of the world. The next paragraph suggests that the Commonwealth Government should pass legislation to deal with the matter. Will the Postmaster-General include some remarks on this subject when he is making his promised statement early next week?
