Questions without Notice
Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Yet again, I remind Senator Wong of the answer that I gave previously to Senator Urquhart and to Senator Wong: these are matters for ABC management to decide for themselves.
I note that, rather than complaining, there are some proactive members on our side of politics, like the member for Sturt, who has started a petition asking people to preserve The 7.30 Report in South Australia. I would invite Senator Wong to sign it and join us, along with Mr John Bannon, to invite the ABC to make the cuts in Ultimo, rather than in regional centres right around the nation.
