Senator DAVIDSON - My question is directed to the Minister for the Media. I refer to his observations yesterday regarding the establishment of frequency modulation radio in Sydney and Melbourne. Are there any plans for the establishment of a frequency modulation station in Adelaide? If so, when will it be established? What is the situation of the AM radio station VL5UV operated by the University of Adelaide? Is it a fact that the Minister is keen to find a frequency for VL5UV which would put it in the broadcast band used by the Australian Broadcasting Commission and commercial stations? If so, when is this likely to take place?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) -As I mentioned to the Senate yesterday, I will be making a ministerial statement on the matter later on in the day. The frequency modulation licences that are being issued are being issued on an experimental basis at this stage and will be restricted at this stage to Sydney and Melbourne. The second aspect of the honourable senator's question will be touched on in my ministerial statement.
