Senator MULVIHILL - Can the Minister for Civil Aviation indicate that when deciding to . increase landing and air navigation .charges he gave full consideration to the submissions of the working group on Department of Civil Aviation costs and charges- which reported to - him in May 1971? Does he believe that a by-product of such increases ultimately will be a charge on migrant transport costs, among other things?

Senator COTTON - Consideration was given to the working ' "committee report. Consideration is always ' given to that sort of examination of a particular situation. The fixing of navigation charges is part of a process of trying to recover from the users the immense cost of providing civil aviation facilities. It is inevitable that these charges will become part of the cost structure of all airlines, but it is a very much smaller percentage of their cost- structure than many people would imagine. I can obtain the percentage for the honourable senator.
