Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question to the Prime Minister is supplementary to one which 1 asked him on 8th October relative to the construction by Qantas Empire Airways of an hotel of international standard in Sydney. On 2nd November, the right honorable gentleman wrote me a letter in reply to my question. Part of his letter reads as follows: -

An examination is now being made to determine whether hotel projects being undertaken by private interests in Sydney will meet that need or whether special steps need to be taken involving some degree of participation by Qantas. Until that examination is complete, no further action will be taken by the Government on the Qantas proposal.

I now ask the Prime Minister: How long does he believe that this examination will take? Can he say when Cabinet is expected to make this important decision to maintain the service by Qantas Empire Airways on an international standard?
