How Are the Mighty Fallen...In The Most Obscure Places!

  • Nii Lante Wallace-Bruce


These words aptly describe the results of two recent licensing inquiries involving two "heavyweight" companies in Australia. The purpose of this article is to analyse the inquiry conducted by the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal (ABT) into the fitness and propriety of Alan Bond and Bond Media Ltd to hold commercial radio and television licences and the impact of the Tribunal's decision. This will be compared and contrasted with the inquiry conducted by Victoria's Credit Licensing Authority (CLA) into HFC Financial Services Limited's application for a credit provider's licence.
