Senator MCCLELLAND - My question is directed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. I preface it by saying that last Thursday 1 asked the Minister whether the Co-. ordinator of the Rationalisation Committee had decided against an application by Ansett-A.N.A.. for access to intermediate stops between Adelaide and Darwin. I now ask the Minister whether he is in a position to say whether an appeal has been lodged by Ansett Transport Industries Ltd. against the. Co-ordinator's decision. If so, when is the appeal likely to be heard and will it be heard in public?

Senator HENTY - Mr. President, when the honorable senator asked his previous question, I gave him an answer as to the procedure and advised him that the Coordinator had been asked to supply the reasons in writing for his decision. 1 understand those reasons have been given. They have been considered by -Ansett-A.N.A. which has now lodged an appeal to Mr. Justice Spicer. I am not aware of the appeal procedure. I would not have thought that it would be a public hearing but I cannot answer that section of the honorable senator's 'question at the moment.
