I give notice that the Senate:
1. notes that:
a. there is community concern about the Transport Minister's decision to allow international passenger flights to land at Adelaide Airport at 5.10am, from April 2014; and
b. the Adelaide Airport Curfew Act 2000 bans aircraft take-offs and landings between 11pm and 6am, except with the Minister's permission, to protect the lifestyle of residents who live under the flight path; and
2. affirms that:
a. this use of executive power, to avoid a clear legislative protection for Adelaide's residents, exposes these residents to aircraft noise and loss of amenity; and
b. where the Parliament establishes such a protection, the protection should not be removed without Parliament specifically considering the matter, and so the Minister's power to approve flights outside of the Adelaide Airport curfew should be repealed.
