Mr SHEEHAN - I ask the Minister for Civil Aviation whether Captain E. C. Johnston, former chairman of the Civil Aviation Board, which was severely criticized in the DepartmentalReport on Civil Aviation tabled in this House yesterday, is still known as Controller-General of Civil Aviation ? Is it also a fact that two other former members of the Civil Aviation Board, Messrs. Cobby and McComb, hold responsible positions in the reorganized Department of Civil Aviation? Does the Minister propose to make any changes in the personnel of the Civil Aviation Department apart from the appointment of a director-general already made? I point out that the report tabled yesterday recommended changes of personnel and stated that a radical change of outlook was needed .
