Mr NIXON (Gippsland) - I move:

That the following new clause be inserted in the Bill: 18a. After section 41 of the principal Act the following sections are inserted: "42. The Minister will not exercise any powers under or by virtue of this or any other Act, or Regulations, so as to discriminate unfairly in favour of the Commission or any other person engaged in the provision of services for the transport of passengers or goods by air or by land or in the establishment, maintenance or operation of hotels or other establishments or enterprises providing accommodation, recreation, entertainment or other services or facilities.

43.   Nothing in this Act will affect or authorise action inconsistent with the obligations of the Commission under, or the provisions or purposes of, the agreement referred to in sub-section (3) of section 3 of the Airlines Agreements Act 1952-1972 and the agreement referred to in sub-section (2) of that section as affected by the foregoing agreement and the agreement referred to in sub-section (1) of that section as affected by each of the foregoing agreements.".'.

This proposed new clause 18a can be described as a fair play clause to ensure that Trans-Australia Airlines, throughout the whole breadth of its new operations, will be seen by the public and the world at large to be operating in a fair and equal manner with its competitors. I seek the acceptance of this new clause by the Parliament.
