BANKSTOWN AIRPORT ACCESS ROAD
The Hon. I. COHEN:
I ask the Special Minister of State, and Assistant Treasurer, representing the Minister for Agriculture, and Minister for Land and Water Conservation, a question without notice. Does the Minister intend to permit the disposal of a portion of Crown Land Reserve R87991, known as Airport Reserve, Milperra, for the construction of an access road to Bankstown airport through flood-prone land affecting the Georges River and the existing endangered habitat? Is the Minister aware that the remnant transition forest at this site is listed under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995? Is the Minister further aware that this road will access fast-food chains, hotels and warehouses approved by Bankstown City Council?
The Hon. J. J. DELLA BOSCA:
I am not in a position to answer the question, but I undertake to obtain an answer from the Minister and provide it to the honourable member as soon as practicable.
