This 1927 Royal Commission report investigated the radio broadcasting system as it existed and concluded that direct government control over broadcasting was inadvisable. At the same time, the Commission was convinced that the system would benefit from co-operation between Class A and Class B stations and from an overarching supervision by the Postmaster-General’s Department.

The Commission made a number of important recommendations with regards to the administration of the system, including those relating to broadcasters’ licence fees and what conditions should apply to location, power and frequency, operating conditions and advertising.
