Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE.On the 25th September Senator E. B. Johnston asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence the following questions, upon notice -

1.   Has any decision been arrived at in regard to requests made for increasing the air service between Adelaide and Perth to two or three trips each way weekly?

2.   If so. what extra service is proposed, and when will it operate?

I am now in a position to inform the honorable senator that representations have been made that the subsidized air service now operating between Adelaide and Perth be duplicated, that is, an increase of frequency from once to twice weekly in each direction. The matter has received some consideration, but a decision has been deferred pending finality being reached in the negotiations in regard to Commonwealth participation in the Empire air mail scheme.
