Senator COTTON (New South Wales) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - Within the limits of the knowledge of my advisers this evening, who' as I said earlier are members of another department, no such application exists, but that is not to say that we will not make inquiries on behalf of the honourable senator. The current state of knowledge is that no application exists. We will find out what is happening about this matter. Nothing that has been said detracts from the original proposition that the proper origin of such applications is a State parliament and it is not the initiative of a representative Minister in a Commonwealth parliament.

Bill agreed to.

Bill reported without amendment; report adopted.
