Mr TOWNLEY - I think the honorable member will agree that these are really questions for the notice-paper. The Minister concerned is in another place, and the honorable member has asked a long series of questions. In one he spoke of " pressurization ". I think he may have been confused, and was using a term applicable to aircraft. He said that the Government had been " pressurized " by Ansett-A.N.A. to allow it to get a third Electra. The reason why Ansett was allowed to obtain a third Electra was that Trans-Australia Airlines had 25, or perhaps 27, jet turbine aircraft, while Ansett-A.N.A. had only about eight.
