Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE.On the 15th May Senator Hardy asked the following question, without notice: -

Asthe Government has declared that, in the establishment of inter-capital night air services, provision isto be made for four new landing grounds on the Sydney-Melbourne suction, will consideration be given to the establishment of a ground at Wagga, and the classification of that centre asan intermediate stopping place?

I am now in a position to inform the honorable senator that consideration is at present being given to the matter of additional ground organization required on the Sydney-Melbourne section of the proposed inter-capital night air mail services - wireless, emergency landing grounds, night-flying facilities, &c. In selecting flying routes and locating intermediate landing grounds to meet the needs of fast night air mail services of the nature proposed, various relevant factors will receive consideration, including the claims of Wagga and other centres for inclusion in the Sydney-Melbourne section.
