Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - By way of preface to my question, which is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation, T refer to the latter part of his recent Press statement appertaining to land adjacent to Bankstown Airport in which the Minister said that it was unfortunate that parklands have to be sacrificed for other purposes. I ask: Were any direct discussions held between his Department and the New South Wales State Planning Authority which in correspondence to me expressed concern at the takeover of golf courses, thus reducing open space land in metropolitan Sydney? If his Department is successful in the land acquisition, can he say whether any other Commonwealth land can be fed back to the State Planning Authority to enable a satisfactory ratio of open space land to occupied land to operate in metropolitan Sydney?
