Mr MARKS (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister seen a cable in this morning's press stating that an aeroplane which fell in a Paris schoolground killed eight children and severely wounded nine? Should a tragedy of this description occur in one of our capital cities of Australia - as it surely will if indiscriminate flying is continued over the cities - it will throw aviation back for. ten years, which we do not want to happen ; and now that the Commonwealth has, with the consent of the States, taken charge of the air, will the Prime Minister see that the issue of regulations for the control of aviation is expedited?
