Mr CADMAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) condemns the Minister for Aviation for again postponing a decision on Sydney's second airport by appointing yet another expert committee;

(2) is critical of the Minister for going back on his announcement to make a decision by Christmas 1983;

(3) castigates the Government for causing disruption across half of the Sydney metropolitan area which will result in increased unemployment, low levels of building approvals and lack of investment;

(4) expresses its belief that the decision will not be made until December 1985 ; and

(5) urges the Government to announce the details of the forthcoming inquiry and make a decision early in 1984.

The motion will be seconded by the honourable member for Berowra (Dr Harry Edwards).
