Mr DRAKEFORD (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) (Minister for Air) - Several interruptions have occurred to the services which use Western Junction, because of the unserviceable condition of the aerodrome, but it has been in use since the honorable member first drew attention to this matter some time ago. Because of unfavorable weather, difficulty is being experienced at present in operating air services. I have already taken up with the Civil Aviation Department the matter of an examination of the proposed new aerodrome site at Prospect, but it is difficult to secure competent surveyors and engineers to make the necessary technical inspections. I have asked the department to make available a man experienced in dealing with aerodrome sites to examine the Prospect site as soon as possible. When that has been done, I shall be able to supply the honorable member for Wilmot and other honorable member with information as to the suitability of the site.
