(Question No. 5320)


Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Aviation, upon notice, on 1 May 1987:

For the purposes of cost recovery, will the new international departure tax receipts be attributed as revenue to (a) international aviation, (b) domestic aviation, (c) aviation generally, or none of these categories.


Mr Peter Morris —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Departure tax receipts are offset against system overhead costs; they are therefore credited to aviation generally, not to any particular sector or category.
