The Clerk - Notice has been received from the honourable member for Lilley (Mr Kevin

Cairns) of his intention at the next sitting to move:

(1)   That this House acknowledges the unanimous resolutions carried by both the Liberal Party of Queensland and the Federal Council of the Liberal Party of Australia that there should be adequate development of the Brisbane Airport runway and terminals and that they are totally opposed to any proposal to lengthen the existing runway as the answer to the Brisbane airport problem.

(2)   That Brisbane Airport should not be the most inadequate with the shortest runways of any capital city airport on the Australian mainland.

(3)   That promises made, to upgrade that airport since the early 1960s, should be undertaken.

(4)   That the people of Queensland should not be satisfied with an airport and runways which would not be tolerated for a moment by the people of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Perth, or the Northern Territory.

(   5 ) That the runway flight faculties should be upgraded to enable international flights to reach even Singapore or Hong Kong with fully loaded nights at temperatures liable to occur in a semi-tropical climate.

(6)   That the advice given by the Lord Mayor of Brisbane that he was opposed to any proposal to merely lengthen the runway be heeded since it would cause increased flooding in north Brisbane.

(7)   That the Capital City Airport Plan of 1971-72 is unnecessarily extravagant and hence should not be the only alternative plan promised for the airport.

(8)   That this House acknowledges that instead of having a program to spend over $200m, all the needs of the Airport between 1977 and well into the 1990s can be accomplished by spending a third of the above amount mentioned publicly by Sir John Egerton, a member of the board of Qantas.

(9)   That the editorial on Brisbane Airport published in the Courier-Mail of 4 November receive the total support of this House.
