Mr Charles Jones asked the Minister representing the Minister for Civil Aviation, upon notice:

Has any survey been conducted to determine the effects on beaches around Botany Bay and Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport Runway 16/34 when the bay is deepened to 70 feet.

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

You are referring to a project which is under the control of the New South Wales Maritime Services Board to whom the question may be more appropriately addressed. It is known that each step of the project is being subjected to model tests. No adverse effects on the 16/34 Runway are expected.
