Senator HENTY (TASMANIA) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - I think the overcrowding is worse now at the international airport at Sydney than it was last year. This result naturally follows the considerable increase which has taken place both in the international passenger field and in the domestic passenger field. There has been a significant increase in passenger traffic in both these fields.

We have had to re-examine our plans for the new terminal at Sydney with a view to accommodating the increased passenger traffic. This increase is clearly shown in the figures for the last three years. The matter is before the Government at the moment and as soon as it has been considered I will make a statement to the Senate.
