Senator WHEELDON (Western Australia) - by leave - I apologise for interrupting the proceedings but I want to raise a matter of some urgency which, I think, should be drawn to the attention of the Minister for Civil Aviation (Senator Cotton). There are reports that an Olympic Airlines aircraft has been hijacked on a flight out from Sydney; and that the Williamtown air base has advised that a device had been set off indicating that something of this nature had taken place on the plane. As this is a matter of urgency, I have sought and obtained leave to bring it to the attention of the Minister.
