Senator KENNELLY (VICTORIA) - Has the Minister for Civil Aviation seen reports that Ansett-A.N.A. proposes to purchase a number of new DC9 aircraft which have approximately the same capacity as the Boeing 727 jet aircraft at present in service? Was it not the intention of the two airlines to arrange to purchase, instead, a smaller jet aircraft to be used to replace the Viscount aircraft? Have the two airlines agreed that the new aircraft to be purchased should be of the approximate size of the Boeing 727 jets? If not, what is the present position?
