Senator LAWRIE (QUEENSLAND) - I ask a question of the Minister for Civil Aviation, Referring to the Minister's statement on 29th August last that Trans-Australia Airlines will get the right to operate on more routes, can the Minister inform the Senate when TAA will commence its air services on the Cairns-Weipa-Thursday Island route?

This negotiating process is continuing.
