Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - In addressing a question to the Postmaster-General I should like to say first that I am sure everybody is very pleased to see him back after his recent illness. It is because we have missed him that he is being asked so many questions to-day. My question is as follows: - Is the honorable gentleman yet in a position to say when Government policy in regard to the allocation of television licences in Adelaide and Brisbane is to be announced? I should like to ask, too, as I asked the Prime Minister the other day, whether the delay in making an announcement is due to the in ability of the Government to decide between the various newspaper interests which want licences. When was the report from the Austraiian Broadcasting Control Board received by the Government? Is it the intention of the Government to refuse to make any decisions until after the elections are over?
