What consideration, if any, has the Government given to the calling of applications for a second commercial broadcasting licence in Canberra.

Senator COTTON - As Acting Postmaster-General I provide the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Australian Broadcasting Control Board has the question of the further development of the commercial broadcasting services under continuous review and in this connection the possibility of the establishment of a second commercial broadcasting station to serve Canberra has been under consideration for some time, but 1 am not yet in a position to indicate the outcome.
