Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Is it true that the recent major statement on the extension of the 2-airline policy has come under great pressure from certain interests and that the Government is reconsidering its whole position as given in the statement 2 weeks ago? When can we expect the necessary legislation to be introduced?

Senator COTTON - The answer to the first part of the question is no. The answer to the second part is that we should not be very far away from the point that the honourable senator is seeking where legislation can be introduced. Negotiations with the 2 operators are in process and have almost reached a conclusion.
