Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Is the relatively high fatality rate among Australian crop dusting pilots due to the failure of the Department of Civil Aviation to police effectively the 900 flying hours per annum ceiling that has been imposed for safety reasons? Does the highly competitive nature of the work cause some employers to falsify log books to circumvent the current annual flying hours limitation? Have any prosecutions been launched against offending employers?
