Mr THOMPSON (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Ipreface my question, which is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation, with the statement that for some years parts of the metropolitan area of Adelaide have been suffering from a 'bad outbreak of fruit fly. Steps arc now being taken in an endeavour to prevent the outbreak spreading to other districts. - Can the Minister for Civil Aviation say whether any requests have been made to TransAustralia Airlines to assist in the achievement of this objective by complying with the proposals that have been made regarding the disposal and treatment of fruit that is carried by civil aircraft either as freight or for consumption by passengers? If such requests have been made, can the honorable gentleman say whether Trans-Australia Airlines has complied with them?
