Mr FOX (HENTY, VICTORIA) - I preface a question to the Postmaster-General by saying that it is commonly believed that the PostmasterGeneral's Department is losing revenue because many persons avoid the payment of a television licence-fee. Will the Minister give consideration to my suggestion that television retailers be furnished with receipt books and that it be incumbent upon them to collect the first year's licence-fee at the time of sale of the television set as is done in many overseas countries? Such a scheme should be of great assistance to the department in the collection of licence-fees subsequently.
