Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Is leave granted? There being no objection leave is granted.

Dr MACKAY - My memory has been at fault, for which I apologise. At question time I made a statement which was not entirely accurate. I inform the House that there has been approach earlier this year from the Minister for Civil Aviation to the Ministers for Air, Defence and Navy for a re-examination of the Schofields area to see whether greater use could be made of it for civil aviation purposes. The current position is that a study has been initiated at the officials level. I have conveyed this information to the honourable member for Chifley.

Mr Armitage - Mr Deputy Speaker-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Does the honourable member seek leave to make a statement?

Mr Armitage - I. will speak on it at a later date. I only wanted a few moments to answer the Minister.

Mr Foster - Give it to him tonight for 10 minutes.

Mr Armitage - The Minister will not be here tonight.
