Senator SCOTT - The zoning of areas adjacent to the Commonwealth owned airport at Tullamarine is a matter for the State Government. I know that the Department of Civil Aviation has drawn attention to the noise problem which could affect some limited areas adjacent to Tullamarine. Several months ago I had occasion to visit the proposed airport terminal at Tullamarine. It was pointed out to me that the airport was well outside the densely populated areas of Melbourne but that development was coming out towards it and no doubt would reach it. There will be a very large noise problem there if people are allowed to build right up to the boundary of the airport. I think the Department of Civil Aviation and the Minister for Civil Aviation have done everything possible to advise people and to make public the fact that there will be a noise problem for those who decide to build adjacent to the runway strips at Tullamarine. I agree with the honourable senator's suggestion that if people decide to build there they will be doing so with a full knowledge of the noise problem
