Mr BIRNEY (PHILLIP, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister for Transport aware that the extent of a recent fire on a Sydney train was mainly attributable to the presence of a highly flammable material- polyurethane- in the train seats? Does the composition of aeroplane seats used on Australian airliners include this substance? If so, does he regard its presence as a safety hazard? Is remedial action contemplated? Is there any need for public concern relative to any of the materials used in the manufacture of such seats?
