Senator COTTON - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1)   The 1976 Noise Exposure Forecast for Sydney (Kingsford-Smith) Airport is intended to provide those concerned with the airport and its environs with an indication of whether or not the community around the airport will or will not be subjected to additional noise exposure by 1976 and, if so, how much. The increase in air traffic used in the 1976 NEF for Sydney is 40 per cent and not 70 per cent as suggested.

(2)   and (3) Regarding questions 2 and 3. in respect of the report of the Inter-departmental Committee looking into the future airport requirements of the Sydney area.I can only reiterate what I said in the Senate on 26th October 1970 and in a letter to the honourable senator on 26th November 1970. and that is that the report is still being studied in great detail andI am not in a position to make any further comment on it at this stage.
