Sir EARLE PAGE (COWPER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Air make available in the immediate future an officer to go through the north-coast district of New South Wales and advise local authorities at such places as Wingham, Taree, Kempsey, Coffs Harbour and Grafton regarding the measures necessary to put aerodromes into a condition to meet official requirements? The Kempsey aerodrome, which was used throughout the war, has now been declared unsuitable, and local councils are searching for a new site. In view of the expanding housing programmes in the other towns mentioned, and other public works which are being undertaken, it is necessary that the local governing authorities ' should know clearly what they should do to prevent the alienation of Crown lands so that they will be available in the future as sites for aerodromes.
