Mr DRAKEFORD - Beyond the fact that the Deputy Leader of the Country party mentioned this matter to me yesterday, I know nothing of the closing down of the aerodrome at Alice Springs. If it has been closed, I should say the reason is that it does not comply with the safety standards prescribed by the Civil Aviation Department - standards which are constantly being raised. I should not be willing to support the department if it did anything to interfere with the splendid service rendered in the Northern Territory by Connellan over a period of many years. I shall have the matter looked into, with a view to having the service continued on a satisfactory basis.
