Mr Morrison asked the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, in writing, on 3 February 2009:

Will he rule out the construction of a second Sydney Airport at Kurnell, on the basis that a second airport has been ruled out for Badgerys Creek.

Mr Albanese (Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

A process to identify additional capacity for the Sydney region will be initiated after I have considered Sydney Airport Corporation Limited’s draft Master Plan for Sydney Airport. As I indicated when launching the National Aviation Policy Green Paper on 2 December 2008, I do not intend to speculate on possible sites for a second Sydney airport.
