Mr ABBOTT - I ask you, Mr. Speaker, whether you have approved of the installation of a loud-speaker in Committee Room 218 in Parliament House, through which parliamentary debates are, in fact,being broadcast, and whether you will obtain advice as to the legality of the broadcast, and the possible right of action by individuals against yourself and the Australian Broadcasting Commission if any defamatory matter is published by such action prior to the passage of the Parliamentary Proceedings 'Broadcasting Bill? Will you inform honorable members, as soon as possible, of their privileges and liberties in this direction, as they have been ascertained by you?
