Mr BRIMBLECOMBE (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - My question to the Postmaster-General is prompted by the 1958 regulations for operators of amateur wireless stations. Regulation No. 66 states that operators in Australia must transmit and receive, in English, messages of a personal or experimental nature, and so on. Has the Minister any evidence that amateurs infringed their privileges when, prior to the promulgation of the altered regulations, languages other than English could be used? Would not the use of languages other than English tend to foster better understanding and goodwill in the international cause?
