Mr SAINSBURY (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Minister for Post and Telecommunications will know that applications closed on 4 November this year for a commerical radio translator to be located in the MoruyaBatemans Bay area of New South Wales. The Minister will know also that the population of that region is rapidly expanding. Despite this, it still suffers incredibly bad radio reception. When will the translator licence be granted to the successful applicant?

Mr Eric Robinson (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) - The facts that the honourable member has stated are perfectly correct. I know that an application went before the Australian Broadcasting Control Board I think 2 days ago. Originally there were 3 applicants for this translator. I understand that two withdrew. I expect to have a report from the Board very shortly. I will make a decision very promptly as soon as I get it.
