Senator MCCLELLAND - Has the

Minister for Civil Aviation received complaints from the Association of Commercial Flying Organisations of Australia about Ansett Transport Industries Limited acquiring the Australian distributorship for Piper light aircraft, and objections to the expansionist policy of a Government protected airline monopoly which now seeks to control yet another branch of Australian aviation? Bearing in mind the statement attributed to the Deputy Leader of the Country Party in New South Wales in August last, that the man in the street can be excused for believing that R. M. Ansett dictates Commonwealth civil aviation policy, will the Minister prove that this is not so by taking action to protect the interests of Australia's existing established light aircraft operators?
