Mr FAIRHALL (PATERSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Interior) - As I recall it, Mr. Speaker, the relevant section of the act provides that no person shall exhibit, or cause to be exhibited, an electoral poster of an area greater than 60 square inches. Since the television screen is constantly on public exhibition I should think that the reproduction thereon of an electoral poster of an area greater than 60 square inches would constitute an offence; but the mere exhibition on a television screen of the face of a politician, or aspiring politician, would not. in my view, constitute exhibition of a poster.
