Dr MACKAY (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that ATN Channel 7 in Sydney last night screened, as part of its news bulletin, a film of the trial and execution of a war profiteer in Saigon; that the film showed every detail of the revolting killing; and that it was shown at 6.30 p.m. - a time when many young children, including mine, were watching? Will the Minister ascertain the source of this film, how it entered Australia, whether it was subject to any censorship, and whether it is necessary for this type of propaganda to be shown on Australian television, especially at such an hour? Finally, will the Minister obtain for the House the identity of those responsible for the decision so to screen this film?
