Senator HENTY - I understand that the strip to which the honorable senator refers is a local ownership strip, which means that it is owned by the local authority and that the Commonwealth has entered into an agreement to find half the maintenance costs. The problem that the honorable senator has mentioned is under consideration at the moment between the local authority and the Department of Civil Aviation. I understand that the strip is to be reseeded as soon as the weather is suitable. Reseeding in that part of the country can be carried out only during two or three months of the year. I understand also that consideration is being given to treating the ends of the strip with some type of sealing materia] in order to keep the dust menace down. I will ask the Department to have a look at the matters which the honorable senator has raised and to see what can be done to treat the area in order to remove this dust menace from the township to which this strip is so close.
