Mr OPPERMAN (CORIO, VICTORIA) - I preface a question to the Minister for Supply by stating that, following recent retrenchments at Avalon, near Geelong, several means have been suggested of maintaining and developing an undertaking on which a considerable amount of money has been expended and for which a skilled staff has been created. This undertaking is in relatively close proximity to both Melbourne and Geelong. Because of these factors, will the Minister give serious consideration to the suggestion that, before any further retrenchments are made, Avalon be investigated with a view to making it an alternative or additional airport to Mangalore for civilian aircraft?
