Senator CAVANAGH - I direct a question to the Minister for Civil Aviation. In view of the reported possible damage caused by supersonic flights over land areas which, in a reply on 22nd February to a question from Senator Douglas McClelland, the Minister said was a question for study by the Academy of Science, will he give the Senate an opportunity to consider any findings of the Academy on this matter before permission is given for supersonic flights in any corridor over Australia?

Senator COTTON - It is well known from the number of answers that I have given to a number of questions on this subject that I am still awaiting the report of the Academy of Science. When I have studied the report I will give consideration to the extent to which it may usefully be made available to people who have an interest in this matter.
