Mr LISTER (CORIO, VICTORIA) - The Government has acquired certain lands in the vicinity of Geelong and Werribee, on the shores of Corio Bay, for the purpose of establishing aeroplane bases and aerodromes. I understand that an area of some 12,000 acres adjoining the proposed aeroplane base near Geelong has been declared by the Defence Department a restricted area, and that similar action has been taken with respect to another considerable area in the vicinity of Werribee. Is the Minister aware that that action has had the effect of restricting the advancement of those two very important centres; and will he obtain a report , showing the need for it?
