Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Julie Bishop warns couples to carefully consider overseas surrogacy laws
Her comments follow revelations by the ABC’s Foreign Correspondent program that government officials could not stop Australian parents from abandoning their baby son born to an Indian surrogate in 2012.
The couple decided they only wanted to take the son's twin, a baby girl, back home because they “could not afford to support both children.”
Freedom of Information (FOI) documents show that Australian officials raised concerns at the time that the baby boy could be left “stateless”.
The boy was later adopted by an Indian family who connected with the Australian couple.
Ms Bishop said she was confident the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade acted appropriately.
