Senator MARRIOTT (TASMANIA) (Assistant Minister assisting the Minister for Health)

The PRESIDENT - I call Senator Marriott.

Opposition senators - Hear, hear!

Senator MARRIOTT (TASMANIA) (Assistant Minister assisting the Minister for Health) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Civil Aviation. Is the Minister aware that the revolving message and information board at Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport has been removed from the main passenger concourse to the ground floor departure lounge? Will he consider my suggestion that this useful piece of equipment should be returned to the concourse, which is used by all visitors as well as by passengers arriving, departing and in transit, whereas in the present position it is normally seen only by passengers leaving the airport by bus, taxi or private vehicle.

Senator COTTON - I am sure the honourable senator was delighted with the tremendous warmth that greeted the breaking of his radio silence. I am grateful to him for observing the change which has been made in the positioning of the message roundel atTullamarine Airport. I will inquire as to why it was removed from its previous position and investigate whether it was better situated there.
