Mr WIGHT (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation. Before the Minister relinquished the Civil Aviation portfolio, what arrangements did he make for the transfer to Brisbane of Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith's historic aircraft, " Southern Cross "? Were arrangements made for the aircraft to be stored at Brisbane or Amberley until such time as a committee was ready to take it over? Will he confirm that the Department of Civil Aviation will maintain and care for the memorial when it has been completed? Finally, can he give an assurance that there will be no alteration of the arrangements that he made prior to relinquishing the Civil Aviation portfolio as a result of the appointment of a new Minister?
