Senator COTTON (NEW SOUTH WALES) -Will the Minister representing the Minister for Transport direct his colleague's attention to the observation that the Lufthansa Boeing 747 crash could have been avoided had that company adapted its wing flap warning system to the system operated on the British Airways fleet? Could he see to it that Qantas Airways Ltd has taken note of this position? Could he let us know whether these adjustments to the warning system have been made in the Qantas fleet?

Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs) - I will direct the question to the Minister for Transport. I do not know whether a crash could have been avoided if the company concerned had done certain things. I think this matter will be the subject of a thorough inquiry to see whether any remedial action can be taken.
