Evening Post (Wellington, N.Z.); Lodge, Nevile Sidney, 1918-1989

The scene is the Minister of Transport's desk. Colin McLaughlin is asleep with his feet up on the desk. A 'do not disturb' sign hangs on the desk and he has been asleep for so long that cobwebs have formed on him. The tray on his desk is labelled 'pending' and 'for govt. consideration (some time)'. In the tray sits the '1979 Scott report recommending W'gton airport runway extension'.

Extended Title - Coming to Wellington to discuss closer ties between Australia and New Zealand, the Australian P.M. had to land at Christchurch as the Wellington Airport runway is too short for Mr. Fraser's 707 aircraft
