Mr JULL (BOWMAN, QUEENSLAND) - Is the Minister for Transport aware of a Brisbane Sunday Sun Press report on 6 February that both Ansett Airlines of Australia and Trans- Australia Airlines plan to spend $ 10m on new terminal facilities on their present locations at Brisbane Airport to handle passenger traffic until 1990? Does this indicate that all plans for a new airport complex in Brisbane have been scrapped, or is there still a possibility that the relocation of the runway system will go ahead to alleviate the noise problems in the Wynnum area in my electorate and in areas of the electorates of Griffith and Lilley?

Mr NIXON -I am able to reassure the honourable member that any redevelopment programs proposed by either Ansett or TAA do not in any way inhibit any future decisions that may be taken in respect of relocation of the runways at Brisbane Airport.
