Mr McClelland asked the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, upon notice, on 8 September 2003:

(1) Is he familiar with the first message of the Community Panel Report to Sydney Airport Corporation in June 2003 recommending that the relevant authorities establish a model for assessing the noise impacts of flight paths that incorporate criteria and weightings for, among other factors, the time of the day that aircraft movements occur.

(2) When he reviews the Long Term Operating Plan, will he implement this recommendation so that residents of the electoral division of Barton are not assaulted by aircraft noise late at night and first thing again the following morning, as they currently are.

Mr Anderson (Minister for Transport and Regional Services) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) I understand the Community Panel Report forms part of Sydney Airport Corporation Limited's consultation process for the preliminary draft Master Plan. I will consider the draft Master Plan in due course.

(2) The Sydney Airport Community Forum is conducting a review of the Long Term Operating Plan (LTOP). It is a matter for SACF to determine whether the recommendations of the Community Panel Report will be taken into account.
