Senator HENTY - I have not read any advertisements to the effect that TransAustralia Airlines proposes to run a Boeing 727 jet service from Sydney to Hobart to commence on 19th December. The airstrip at Hobart would not be fit for a regular 727 service by that time. Approximately £248,000, 1 think, is to be spent on this strip in the future for the purpose of strengthening it so that it will be able to take an Electra service and occasional 727 services. But to the best of my knowledge this strip is not fit at the moment to take regular Boeing 727 services as suggested. I have no knowledge as to whether Ansett-A.N.A. proposes to run a Boeing 727 service to Hobart.
