Mr UREN (Reid) (12:17 PM) .- I join with the honorable member for Lalor (Mr. Pollard) in opposing this bill. Although certain facilities at airports could well be improved, I have strong opposition to certain of the proposals in this bill. The trend to-day seems to be that you must be able to obtain liquor at an airport. Not many years ago a referendum on hotel closing hours was held in New South Wales. At that time I supported the argument for an extension of trading hours, but I feel that the extension that has taken place in trading hours in that State has not been in the best interests of the workers. If I had an opportunity again - and I think many people in New South Wales would support me - I would vote for a return to the former drinking hours in that State. It seems to me that in this chamber to-night some Government supporters have had one too many.
