Senator LAUGHT (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address to the Minister for Civil Aviation a question about the Adelaide airport terminal. Has the Minister's attention been drawn to a report in .the "Adelaide News" of 30th March concerning the present complete inadequacy of the Adelaide airport terminal? Whether or not his attention has been directed to this report, in particular does he agree with the statement that the possibility of improving the terminal seesaws between the provision of a new terminal and doubling the existing terminal? Has the seesaw come to rest yet? If so, in what position is it? Did the Minister note the allegation that for six months the Public Works Committee has put off an inquiry into this matter? Is this correct? If so, what action can be taken to speed the matter up? As it is estimated that, with the new jet aircraft now in use, 800 passengers could need to use the terminal in the space of one hour, will the Minister give immediate attention to the problem?
