Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 18 October 1977:

(1)   Further to Question No. 1425 {Hansard, 30 November 1976, page 301 1), what were the results of the investigations into complaints he received from the Aus.tralian Federation of Air Pilots in respect of the operation of air services by South Australian and Territorial Air Services.

(2)   What action has he taken following the completion of the investigation.


Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The investigation into the complaints raised by the Australian Federation of Air Pilots in respect of the operation of air services by South Australian and Territorial Air Services has been completed. At my direction, a detailed summary of the findings of that investigation was sent to the Australian Federation of Air Pilots on 9 December 1976.

Briefly, the investigation revealed several breaches of flight and duty time limitations in the case of a pilot previously employed by the operator. Of these breaches, only two were regarded as serious.

(2)   These matters have been taken up with the operator to ensure that breaches of these limitations are avoided in the future.
