Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice on 26 October 1977:

(   1 ) What progress has been made in the establishment of a joint review team to investigate in detail the structure and functions of Airport Safety Officers as set out in the Department's annual report.

(2)   If the review has been completed, will he make copies of the report available.

(3)   Is he able to say what changes are to be made to the structure and functions of Airport Safety Officers.


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

(   1 ) A joint Public Service Board/Departmental team was established in July 1976 to inspect the Airport Safety Officer work group within the Department As a consequence, agreement in principle was reached between the two parties in the first half of this year on a new structure for Airport Safety Officers.

(2)   The study, as such, of the structure and functions of the Airport Safety Officer work group has been completed. But, inasmuch as it took the form of a joint inspection as distinct from a joint review, a formal report was not prepared.

(3)   The agreement with the Public Service Board provides for the introduction of a new three level structure for Airport Safety Officers. The Department and the Public Service Board are currently pursuing finalisation of position classification standards prior to seeking final agreement to and implementation of the new structure.
