Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question, which is directed to the Minister for Civil Aviation, refers to the airport at Port Pirie in South Australia. Has he any information on the results of the recent conversations, about which I have read, between officers of the Department of Civil Aviation and municipal authorities at Port Pirie in South Australia concerning the future use of the airport there?

Senator COTTON - This matter was reported to me as concerning light aircraft flying activities at Port Pirie and involving some problems of couch grass on the runways. Discussions between the Department of Civil Aviation and the local authorities having been conducted. I understand that the problem has been resolved and that there is nothing further to worry about. This is what I am told.
