Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

The Prime Minister of New Zealand, Mr. Peter Fraser, is reported to have stated in the New Zealand parliament yesterday that as an alternative to international ownership and control of post-war civil aviation New Zealand is prepared to support a system of imperial air trunk routes across the Pacific, owned and operated by British and dominion governments. In view of this announcement would the Prime Minister inform the house whether or not civil aviation will be one of the subjects on the agenda for discussion at the forthcoming meeting of commonwealth prime ministers?
