Mr McEWEN - The Connellan air service, as the Minister for Air knows, operates from Alice Springs and serves the whole of the Northern Territory. Is the honorable gentleman aware that his department has cancelled the licence of the aerodrome at Alice Springs known as the Town Site aerodrome, thus obliging this air service to operate from an aerodrome south of the Macdonnell Ranges, whichis most inconvenient to both the service and the people who use it? Is the honorable gentleman also aware that his department has indicated the probability of its cancelling the licences of a number of other aerodromes used by this service ? If he has no knowledge of the matter,' will he inquire into it, with a view to determining whether it is possible to make arrangements ensuring the continuance of this service, which has changed the whole of the conditions of life of very many people in the outback parts of 'the Northern Territory?
