Senator LILLICO (Tasmania) .- Will the Minister say whether and when it is proposed to use Fokker Friendship aircraft on the King Island service and whether there is any chance of these aircraft being used on the Flinders Island service? I know that the aerodrome at Flinders Island would not now be suitable, but is there a possibility of bringing it up to a standard at which it could take these aircraft? There is no need for me to tell the Minister that aircraft are the only means of transportation for the people on those two islands; he knows that. If they could be serviced with the more modern Fokker Friendship aircraft, it would be a great boon to them.
