Industry lobbies for removal of the quality children’s quotas on commercial TV April 11, 2017

According to The Australian newspaper of 10 April, the TV industry has told a House Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts inquiry into the factors contributing to the growth and sustainability of the Australian film and TV industry that it thinks the long standing requirements (1979) for quality quotas for children and preschool children are “highly interventionist”.

The Australian Children’s TV Foundation (ACTF) and the Screen Producers’ Association of Australia, on the other hand, are strongly supportive of quotas (as is ACCM).
