Mr STREET (CORANGAMITE, VICTORIA) - I ask a question of the Minister for National Development. I refer to a question which I asked in August last year. Has the Government reached a decision regarding the purchase or lease of Canadair CL215 fire bombing aircraft for forest protection? lt the Government has decided not to purchase or lease any of these aircraft, and remembering the very serious forest fires that occurred in Victoria and elsewhere this summer, will the Minister consider investigating the possibility of converting obsolescent Royal Australian Air Force aircraft for fire protection purposes? I am thinking of the Neptune P2V5 aircraft.
