Senator POYSER - Further to my question of yesterday I ask the Minister for the Media whether he has any further information on what coverage television stations will give to the Prime Minister's visit to China and Japan?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) -As I mentioned to the honourable senator yesterday, the Australian Broadcasting Commission and the Channel 0-Ten network will be sending television teams with the Prime Minister's party on its visit to Japan and China. I am not in a position to say what the Channel 9 organisation is doing about television coverage of the visit. However, I have been informed that the 'Sydney Morning Herald ' group will be sending 3 journalists to accompany the Prime Minister's party. The 'Sydney Morning Herald' also has appointed a topline woman journalist, Miss Margaret Jones, to a position in Peking. The Channel 7 group in Melbourne will be sending a television cameraman and that group 's film, I understand, will be made available to the Channel 7 network in Australia.
