Mr THOMPSON (PORT ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -I ask the Minister for Air whether he has considered the protests that have been sent to him in recent years regarding the aerial pageant held on a Sunday to celebrate Battle of Britain Week. Does he consider that such a celebration held on a Sunday is befitting in a Christian country? After the celebration in July this year the Adelaide " Advertiser " reported that Group Captain Susans had said -

We hope that the display will become another traditional South Australian picnic outing like the Oakbank race meeting.

Has the Minister considered the requests of church bodies that these celebrations should not be held on a Sunday, but on a Saturday or some other day of the week?

Suggest corrections
