Mr BUCHANAN (MCMILLAN, VICTORIA) - My question is supplementary to the last question which was addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation. In view of the question regarding the safety factor inherent in the configuration of these DC9 aircraft, does this constitute good grounds for reconsidering the purchase of the British BACIII even at this late stage?

Mr FAIRBAIRN - Again I point out that I have to refer this question to my colleague in another place, but it is the airlines themselves who make this decision, not the Government. Both airlines decided that the DC9 was the aircraft that they required and it is for them to make that decision.
