Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice on 5 October 1977:

(1)   Has his Department undertaken a study into the impact that international airlines carrying passengers between Australian capital cities have on Australia's domestic carriers.

(2)   If so, (a) what specific aspects of this question will the study be investigating, (b) when does he expect the report to be completed, (c) what prompted him to call on his Department to undertake the study, (d) will the study team be seeking submissions from (i) international airlines operating in Australia on domestic air routes and (ii) Australia 's domestic carriers, (e) what branches of his Department does the study involve and (f) will he table in the Parliament the report of the study; if not, why not.

Mr Nixon - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The Department is undertaking currently a study of the carriage of international air traffic over routes within Australia. This will be a contribution to the work of the teams undertaking the domestic aviation and international civil aviation policy reviews on each of which it clearly impinges.

(2)   Full details of the basis for and scope of each review were given in my announcements of the reviews. The Government has not yet decided whether reports of these reviews will be made public
