Mr Allan Fraser (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the

Postmaster-General a question about the siting of the commercial television station for Canberra. A photograph appeared in the " Canberra Times " recently showing the directors of the television company inspecting a site on Black Mountain. While having every confidence in the ability of this company to provide an excellent programme for this district, I ask the PostmasterGeneral: Will it not be necessary to site the transmitter at a much higher elevation to ensure that the programmes are received in the surrounding districts, particularly in the south-east of New South Wales which otherwise may not enjoy the benefits of television for a long time to come? If this is the position, will he take up with the directors of the company the necessity to site the transmitter at a much higher elevation?
