Senator MARRIOTT - Before I address my question to the Minister for Civil Aviation I wish to refute the charge by Senator Dittmer. I had no thought of asking a question in relation to medical benefit funds before I came into the chamber and I did not discuss my question with the Minister representing the Minister for Health. I now ask: Have statements been made which imply that the Menzies Government has not voted sufficient money to modernise the Hobart and Launceston airports? Is such criticism based on the Minister's report to the Senate last week in respect of airport development in Sydney and Melbourne which, rightfully I think, did not mention

Tasmanian airports? What moneys are currently being expended on the development of Hobart and Launceston airports to bring them up to the requirements of future air traffic?
