Mr IRWIN (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Postmaster-General been drawn to the fact that the Australian Broadcasting Commission frequently has committed a breach of the Broadcasting and Television Act by granting free advertising time during 'This Day Tonight' and 'Four Corners' programmes? Is he aware that over a period many business organisations have been getting free plugs on these programmes to the detriment of their competitors? Is he aware that this procedure is considered dishonourable by the people affected and that it creates suspicions of irregular practices?
