Senator IAN MACDONALD (10.57 a.m.) —Could the Minister indicate to me when the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation report into the 1992 incident at Brisbane airport, involving the Ansett 727 aircraft, will be tabled. During the estimates committee hearings, Senator Collins indicated to me that it would be available on 30 May. I wonder if that date is still relevant. That incident, which I pointed out to the Minister two weeks ago in the estimates committee hearings, has subsequently come up in Question Time—the issue of the series of fiascos. I think the comment made in the report, which I quoted to the Minister at the estimates committee hearing, was that it was a bit like keystone cops. Is 30 May still the date for the release of that report or will it be a bit earlier?
