Mr Murphy asked the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, upon notice, on 11 August 2003:

(1) Further to the answers to question Nos 1724, (Hansard, 15 May 2003, page 14540), 2056 and 2058, does the Airports Act 1996 preclude the inclusion of the following instruments into the airport-lessee company's assessment of environmental issues: (a) all relevant New South Wales environmental planning instruments and binding clauses, and (b) the Long Term Operating Plan, if not, why not.

(2) Does the Act direct how the airport-lessee company should plan for dealing with the environmental issues which flow from the assessment of those environmental issues, if so, which parts of the Act apply and how do they operate.

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

(1) and (2) I have dealt exhaustively already with matters relating to New South Wales environmental issues and the Long Term Operating Plan in the context of the Airports Act in response to questions previously asked by the Honourable member.
