Senator GORTON - With no reluctance at all, I give the honorable senator the following answer which has been supplied by the Attorney-General -

The meeting on 30th October 1964 of the Standing Committee of Commonwealth and State Attorneys-General considered the recent amendments of the Commonwealth Air Navigation Regulations made by Statutory Rules 1964 No. 128. The Committee discussed the Commonwealth's proposal as stated in the Prime Minister's letter to the States dated 6th August 1964, that, in regard to intrastate air transport co-ordination, the Commonwealth would act only after consultation with the State transport authorities. The Committee considered the possibility of establishing effective consultative machinery that would obviate the need for a decision on the question of power which is involved in the case of Airlines of New South Wales Pty. Ltd. v. The Stale of New South Wales.
