AUSTRALIAN BILL Aim To Drive Small Operators Out Of Business N.Z. Press Association —Copyright Rec. noon. CANBERRA, this day. "The only proper monopoly is a Government monopoly," said Mr. Chiflev, Prime Minister, in the House of Representatives, defending the Airlines Bill. "I hope in the hot too distant future that the whole of the air transport in this country will be under Government control," he added. , , The bill passed all stages, being only 15 minutes in Committee. Mr. Chifiey said his only regret was that, because of constitutional difficulties, the bill embraced only inter-State airlines and could not include intra-State airlines. "I do not despair about that, because the monopoly that has developed in regard to inter-State and airlines within States will drive every small operator out of the air. "Some of the small intra-State airlines realise that they are going to be swallowed up in time. I hope the Government will be able to make some arrangements by which, if it cannot own intra-State airline services, it will be in a position to become an active participator and share in them."
