Mr Bryant (WILLS, VICTORIA) t asked the PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

What is the explanation of - (a) the fall in mail payments to Trans-Australia Airlines in 1955-56 compared with 1954-55, and (b) the rise in payments to Australian National Airways ProprietaryLimited in the same period?


Mr Davidson - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follows: -

The fall in mail payments to Trans-Australia Airlines in 1955-56 compared with 1954-55 and the rise in payments to Australian National Airways Proprietary Limited in the same period is due primarily to two factors - (a) maintenance of approximate equality of the mail loadings on the competitive routes operated by the two carriers a temporary adjustment of load in favour of Australian National Airways Proprietary Limited being necessary for this purpose, and (b) variations in the payments made for the operation of developmental routes.
