Senator GREENWOOD (VICTORIA) - 1 ask the Minister representing the Minister for Transport: Is the Australian National Airlines Commission, which conducts Trans- Australia Airlines, an autonomous independent statutory body? Does the Commission accept instructions from the Minister for Transport with respect to the salaries to be paid to its employees? Has the Commission accepted instructions from the Minister in respect of the current claim by air pilots for salary increases?

Senator CAVANAGH -Whether the Commission is an autonomous body- it was set up by an Act of the Parliament- is a legal question. I would need some legal advice to answer it properly. I suggest to the honourable senator that he put the question on notice.
