Mr FAIRBAIRN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I greatly appreciate the solicitude for the safety of Ministers implied in the question. Actually it is not true that any aircraft is to be constructed or purchased for the transport of Ministers. Some considerable time ago an aircraft was ordered by the Civil Aviation Board for the purposes of the department. I think at the time it was suggested that, possibly, on occasions, it would be made available for the use of Ministers. The aircraft ordered is for the use of the Civil Aviation Department, and I understand it will be shipped in a few days.
