Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I was not aware of the decision to which the honorable gentleman has referred, but I should imagine that either a State or a Commonwealth court would have jurisdiction in such a case. 1 shall have a look at the matter to determine what is the constitutional position, and whether there is any provision in the Air Navigation Act which gives jurisdiction to one of the Commonwealth courts, and 1 shall advise my honorable friend as soon as I can of the result of my investigation.
