Mr Armitage (CHIFLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation, upon notice.

Will the report of the inter-departmental committee concerning the establishment of a second airport for Sydney be tabled in the House or released publicly so that its findings may be scrutinised.


Mr Swartz - The Minister for Civil Aviation has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

As has been previously indicated to the honourable member in answer to earlier questions in the House, the report of the inter-departmental committee will be referred to the Government.

Following its consideration by the Government, 1 expect a statement will be made, but it is unlikely that the report will be tabled in the House or made public.

The Minister for Civil Aviation has also previously indicated that it is his intention to set up consultation with the State Government before a final choice of a site is made for a second airport for Sydney.
