AIRCRAFT NOISE LEVY BILL 1995
AIRCRAFT NOISE LEVY COLLECTION BILL 1995

Order of the day read for the adjourned debate on the motion of the

Minister for Trade (Senator McMullan)--That these bills be now read a

second time.

Debate resumed.

Senator Parer moved the following amendment:

At end of motion, add ", but the Senate condemns the Government for

its callous and incompetent policy on Sydney Airport, and condemns it

in particular:

(a) for misleading the people of Sydney about the noise that would

be associated with the opening of the parallel runway and the

closure of the east-west runway; and

(b) for its failure to develop adequate noise management measures

prior to the opening of the parallel runway and the closure of

the east-west runway, rather than after it had opened in a

belated response to community pressure".

Debate ensued.

Debate was interrupted while Senator Sandy Macdonald was speaking.

At 7.20 p.m.--
