Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister for Civil Aviation tell the Senate how long it will be before passengers at Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport will have the same kind of amenities as those at Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport, especially in regard to entering and leaving aircraft? If it will be a long time, what steps does he intend to take to provide some kind of facility while we are awaiting a more permanent one?

Senator COTTON (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I know that the honourable senator's interest in this matter is like my own. He is referring to the domestic situation at Sydney (KingsfordSmith) Airport. Of course, the international terminal adequately caters for passengers. At the present time I am studying in some detail the problem of domestic terminals and what might be done to expand them and to provide improved faclities and better protection from the weather, as the honourable senator has mentioned. I will be able to make an announcement before very long, and if Parliament is in recess when I do, I will ensure that my statement is sent to him.
