Senator JESSOP - This question is supplementary to the question I asked previously of the Minister representing the Minister for Transport, which I claim was not answered. The substantive part of my question asked whether it is a fact that the South Australian Government has approached the Minister for Transport with a request that the new Adelaide Airport be declared an international airport and, if so, whether the Government intends to agree with that request.

Senator CAVANAGH - I must have misunderstood the previous question asked by the honourable senator. I thought he asked whether I could verify a rumour that was going around, and I said that I could not. Perhaps I mistook the main part of the question. There have been negotiations over a period of some years on the question of the Adelaide Airport. I do not know what stage they have reached or whether there has been any recent approach by the South Australian Government. I will make inquiries and let the honourable senator know.
