Mr DAVIDSON - The question of siting transmitters for television networks is determined by our engineers, who are particularly competent. It so happens that in regard to the sites at both Rockhampton and Townsville, I have some personal knowledge, and I have had some interesting and unofficial discussions with those who will be responsible for siting the masts. In both these areas there are alternative sites available, and careful examination will be required to ensure that coverage is given to the areas around these two sites and also that it should extend as far west and north as possible. I assure the honorable member that the matter which he envisages in his question has received attention, and I have already received some unofficial reports from those investigating it. The site which will be officially chosen will assure the result which the honorable member seeks to achieve.
