Minister for Civil Aviation a question which arises from an earlier question asked by Senator Kennelly. I ask: Has Trans-Australia Airlines, as a result of a decision of the DirectorGeneral of Civil Aviation, been refused the right to fly from Adelaide to Canberra each Tuesday, that being the day on which South Australian members of the Federal Parliament use the Adelaide to Canberra service and one of the few days on which aircraft operating this service are fully loaded? As today, the first day of the current sessional period, the only available aircraft was two hours late in leaving Adelaide and busy members of Parliament were forced to wait for two hours at the Adelaide airport, will the Government adopt on this route the two airline system which it supports to permit a choice of aircraft, knowing that members will support the airline which can fly to schedule?
