Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Is the Department of Civil Aviation responsible for the safety regulations applicable to parachutist clubs? If it is, will the Minister inform me whether such regulations cover the safety of the parachutist once he or she leaves the dropping plane or whether they apply only to the dropping plane and the dropping zone? Will the Minister also inform me what supervision, if any, is carried out by the Department of the packing and inspection of parachute equipment?
