Senator CHANEY -On 2 April, Senator Thomas asked me, as Minister representing the Minister for Post and Telecommunications, a question concerning the availability of the results of the current review of radiocommunications licences. The Minister for Post and Telecommunications has received a large number of representations on this matter and is very much aware of the concern expressed by many of the organisations to which Senator Thomas referred. The Minister has in fact had meetings on this matter with several associations. Because of the obvious concern in the community on this matter the Minister asked his Department to finalise urgently the review which was being undertaken into the restructuring of radiocommunications licence fees. It is proposed to offer significant relief to many organisations in this area and a submission for the Government's consideration is presently being finalised. The matter is being handled expeditiously and an announcement will be made as soon as decisions are made.
