Mr Bennett asked the Minister for Civil Aviation, upon notice:

(1)   What steps are being taken in Western Australia to establish a second site for an international airport for Perth.

(2)   When will the proposed site become publicly known.

Mr Charles Jones - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The Australian/State Advisory Committee to study Western Australia's airport requirements has had its first meeting and a second meeting is scheduled for mid-November.

The Advisory Committee is concentrating on the Perth region and, among other things, this is expected to lead to identifying a site for Perth's second airline airport.

(2)   The Advisory Committee is not expected to report to Government on its Perth region studies before late 1974 or early 1975.
