Mr HAYLEN (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for Civil Aviation inform me whether there is any truth in the allegation that Trans-Australia Airlines has falsified its profit and loss account by writing up by £200,000 the value of stores purchased from the Commonwealth Disposals Commission? Has any action been taken to check statements in some sections of the press last week that Trans-Australia Airlines has been robbed of £58,000 and has concealed that loss in its accounts? If a check has been made, will the Minister say whether those statements are true or otherwise?
