Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. In the face of the misgivings expressed by the New South Wales Minister responsible for environmental standards in that State, Mr Jack Beale, on the proposed inaugural flight of the Concorde in June, does the

Minister feel that effective liaison has been forged with the State Ministers responsible for environmental standards?

Senator COTTON - Yes, I do. I noted Mr Beale's objections as mentioned in the newspaper report, which reached me at about the same time as a communication from Mr Beale reached me. The honourable senator may be quite sure that we would consult very carefully with the State authorities. If New South Wales, through Mr Beale, has a great objection to the proposed Concorde flight and if he indicates thai to me quite clearly, or the Premier indicates it to the Prime Minister, I will take quite seriously the proposition that perhaps the Concorde should not come to New South Wales.
