Senator BISHOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - -My question is directed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. I ask: Is it a fact, as reported in the Press, that the discussions to which the Minister has just referred between Qantas Airways Ltd, the Australian Federation of Air Pilots and, in some cases, the Minister himself are progressing satisfactorily? If this is the position, is there any reason why an incidental matter - the so-called redundancy and retrenchment of some 40 flight engineers, many of whom were recruited recently and are now being trained in special schools - should not at this instance be immediately revoked?
