Submission to the Senate Environment, Communications and the Arts Committee’s Inquiry into the Effectiveness of the Broadcasting Codes of Practice

6 May 2008
Description

The New South Wales Council for Civil Liberties (CCL) is of the view that adults should be free to decide what they will or will not watch on free-to-air commercial television in evening time slots. CCL notes that 90% of Australians surveyed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) in 2007 agree with this view.

CCL is concerned that this inquiry is yet another attempt to restrict the freedom of expression of ordinary Australians. Not everyone is offended by coarse language. Those who are offended have a choice: they can change the channel or turn their television off. No one is forced to watch any program.
