Senator DEVITT (TASMANIA) - I ask a question of the Minister for the Media. He will recall that earlier this session I raised with him, as a result of his visit to the north-west coast of Tasmania, the possibility of extending Australian Broadcasting Commission services in that area. He advised that the ABC hoped to appoint a journalist in the near future. Is he in a position to say what action has been taken along these lines by the Commission and when it is likely that the north-west coast of Tasmania will receive this additional service?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I recall the honourable senator's question. 1 am pleased to be able to advise him that the Australian Broadcasting Commission has determined to appoint a journalist for the northwestern coast of Tasmania. He will be stationed in Burnie. He will be taking up his duties on Monday, 26 November. I understand that the gentleman concerned is a Mr H. W. Lacey.
