Mr FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Health) - I understand that the Communist party, which also had a regular -session, has been notified that its time has been cancelled. I am not concerned about the view that is expressed in these sessions. I consider it highly desirable, in a democracy, that every view should be expressed. I will fight as strongly for my opponent's right to put his case as for my own. Only a limited number of B class stations operate and it is impossible to provide channels for every organization which desires one. For that reason it is essential that the fairest possible distribution be made of the facilities that are available. [ notice that the Liberal party has also been debarred by station 2 WL; even though that party represents a small proportion of the people, I claim for it the right to facilities to express itself. I ask the Government to ascertain why the company operating this station ' has adopted this attitude.
