Senator KEEFFE - My question, which is directed to the Minister for Civil Aviation, is supplementary to the one I asked of him a few moments ago. I ask: Can it be taken from the Minister's remarks earlier that Townsville will now get a noise abatement committee?

Senator COTTON -I though that Senator Keeffe would understand that Townsville aerodrome is fundamentally an aerodrome

Senator Keeffe - I did not understand what the Minister said.

Senator COTTON -I know that Senator Keeffe does not understand much, but I am trying to help him. Townsville aerodrome is fundamentally an aerodrome which is owned by the Department of Air and which the Department of Civil Aviation operates on a sort of tenancy basis. So, with regard to the development of the aerodrome, we are very much in consultation with the Department. When we have concluded those consultations we will produce the result which we said we would produce.
