Senator SHERRINGTON (Queensland) . - 1 wish to refer to a small matter related to Division No. 140, sub-division 1, item 02 - Air route and airway facilities. I should like to know why a savage fine of £2 is imposed for parking offences involving parking meters at airports. In capital cities a fine of £1 is imposed for parking offences, but at the Brisbane airport a fine of £2 is imposed. 1 do not think that an airport is the place where people go to fill in time. They are usually there on business. The late arrival of aircraft is the biggest trap of all time where parking meters at airports are concerned. Perhaps the Minister could explain the reason for the imposition of a fine of £2 for parking offences at Brisbane airport.
