Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the PostmasterGeneral. Having regard to the problems experienced by farmers in South Australia in hearing news broadcasts during the recent operation of daylight saving, will the Postmaster-General give consideration to leaving the actual time of news broadcasts and farmers' sessions broadcast on regional stations in South Australia unchanged if daylight saving is introduced in South Australia next summer, to fit in with the working patterns of the farming community and so enable farmers to hear their broadcasts which otherwise are too early?

Senator GREENWOOD - If it be the fact that next year the daylight saving experiment of recent years is to be repeated, I am quite sure there will be lessons learnt in the area of news broadcasts. As I have said earlier, this is a matter essentially for the Australian Broadcasting Commission. I will convey the honourable senator's suggestion to the PostmasterGeneral and he will take it up, I am sure, with the Commission.
