Mr DAVIDSON - The great value inherent in television for the dissemination of information, and particularly for education, is realized by the Government and its instrumentalities. Therefore, investigations and inquiries into the use of this medium for educational purposes have been made. The Australian Broadcasting Commission, for instance, is inquiring into the possibilities, and the chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Control Board, during a recent visit overseas, investigated the use of television in the educational field in other countries. I am not in a position to inform the honorable member offhand of the result of these investigations, but I assure him that the matter is under consideration. I will see what detailed information I can get for him about the present state of the inquiries being made.
