Mr FREETH (Forrest) (Minister for Shipping and Transport) . - I move -

That, in accordance with the provisions of the Public Works Committee Act 1913-1960, it is expedient to carry out the following proposed work which was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works and on which the Committee has duly reported to this House: - Extension of the 02/20 Runway to 10,500 feet and associated Taxiway Works at Perth Airport.

The proposal involves the extension of the north-south runway by 2,600 feet, provision of 200 feet stopway paving at the end of the extension, widening of shoulders of the existing runway, strengthening and widening of the existing taxiway and construction of an additional taxiway. The estimated cost of the work is £440,000. The Public Works Committee, in reporting favorably on the proposal, has recommended that the estimated cost of the runway extensions should be re-examined in the light of relative costs at Tullamarine. This will be done when the detailed planning has been completed and prior to the invitation of public tenders. Upon the concurrence of this House in. the resolution, detailed planning can proceed in accordance with the recommendations of the Committee.
