Mr Swartz z asked the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation, upon notice -

1.   Can arrangements be made in the near future to seal and repair the taxiways at the Oakey airport, Queensland?

2.   Has this airport been definitely classified as an alternative for Brisbane airport under certain conditions?

Mr Townley - The Minister for Civil Aviation has replied as follows: -

1.   The taxiways at Oakey are in a satisfactory condition for the types of aircraft at present using this aerodrome and will be kept in that condition.

2.   Oakey airport has the necessary navigational aids to satisfy the requirements of an alternate for Brisbane, and can be used as such when the conditions are satisfactory. It is, however, largely affected by the same weather as Brisbane and, in cases when it is necessary to nominate an alternate to Brisbane on a flight plan, an aerodrome farther away than Oakey is often nominated.
