Adjournment – Sydney Airport

ADJOURNMENT: Sydney Airport

24 May 2005

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (9.29 p.m.)—I rise to draw members’ attention to the personification of why I continue to raise the issue of the impact of Sydney airport on the lives of Grayndler residents.

Max and Cassandra Baron of Sydenham last Saturday lost 100 tiles from their house when a vortex was formed by a low-flying jet. Despite such impacts, the government has made an outrageous decision to breach its commitment to review Sydney’s airport needs in 2005. This was only discovered in response to question 421 from the member for Batman.

The fact is that we do need to examine these issues.
