Senator COTTON - There are noise abatement committees at all major capital city airports and at quite a number of the larger internal airports. The committees consist of representatives of the Department of Civil Aviation and other Commonwealth departments. For instance, my colleague, Senator Wright, helps the committees from time to time on the Commonwealth works side. The committees also consist of representatives of State government authorities and local municipalities. The Department of Civil Aviation seeks to ensure that they are informed of what is happening at airports and they seek to help it by giving their observations. I do not have any details about possible extensions to runways at Adelaide Airport, but 1 shall seek information on this matter from the Department and will certainly advise the honourable senator, either personally or by letter, of the position.
