Mr GALVIN (KINGSTON, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Will the PostmasterGeneral inform the House whether he and Cabinet studied the whole of the transcript of evidence taken by the Australian Broadcasting Control Board in regard to the issue of television licences in Adelaide and Brisbane, before the decision to disregard the recommendations of the board was made? What are the reasons for ignoring the recommendations of this independent body of distinguished, reputable, impartial and capable administrators? Have any promises, undertakings, or agreements, orally or in writing, been entered into between the Government and the applicants for television licences in Adelaide and Brisbane?
