Mr ADERMANN (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister for Civil Aviation whether it is a fact that British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines Limited, which began operations only sixteen months ago, now has a staff of ¬ęt least 200 employees and occupies the whole of the ground floor of a large insurance building in Sydney? Is it a fact that this huge staff has been built up in order to keep two aircraft a week in the air carrying 74 passengers each way between Sydney and Vancouver? If so, will the Minister take the necessary steps to ensure that a drastic economy is effected immediately?
