Mr McEWEN - The establishment of a flying doctor's base at Alice Springs arose in consequence of an offer made to the Government by the Australian Aerial Medical Services - a voluntary association - to provide at Alice Springs a suitable ambulance aeroplane with a pilot and a mechanic, to establish a central wireless transmitting and receiving set, and to arrange a group of pedal wireless sets within a radius of 400 miles from Alice Springs. This offer was made to the Government by the Australian Aerial Medical Services, the only condition being that the Government shall appoint the flying doctor to act in cooperation with the aeroplane service provided. The Government has accepted the offer.
