Mr FENTON (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) - Is the PostmasterGeneral aware that an extraordinary meeting of the shareholders of 3 A.E. has been convened for the 18th May to confirm the amalgamation of that company with 3LO and that the scheme provides that the revenue derived from broadcasting in Victoria, which exceeds £130,000 yearly", shall be divided between these two companies, whereas previously 3LO took 70 -per cent, of it? Having regard to the fact that such a vast revenue is obtainable from the listen ers-in, now numbering throughout Australia nearly 300,000, of whom more than half are in Victoria, will the Minister do something to protect this large number of people from being fleeced by a great broadcasting combine ?
