Mr MACKINNON (CORANGAMITE, VICTORIA) - Some months ago, in the course of conversation with commercial airline pilots operating in the Cape York area, I was informed that there are no night landing facilities or navigational aids for aircraft in the area north of Normanton-Cairns. Has the Minister for Civil Aviation any programme for the installation of such facilities at Weipa or Horn Island, the airport for Thursday Island, in the near future so that flying conditions in that area might be made safer, especially as weather conditions are frequently extremely bad during the storm season?
