(Question No. 5192)


Mr Sinclair asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 19 March 1987:

(1) For each year since 1976, how many exercises have been conducted involving (a) more than 100 Army personnel, (b) more than 2 RAAF combat, transport or surveillance aircraft or (c) more than one RAN major surface combatant or more than 200 RAN personnel.

(2) For each exercise identified in part (1), what was its (a) name, (b) general location, (c) purpose and (d) total cost.

(3) In which exercises did the forces of another nation participate and which (a) nation or nations and (b) units participated in the exercise.

(4) For the remainder of 1987 and 1988, what exercises are planned (a) for the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) alone and (b) in conjunction with the forces of other nations.

(5) What are the (a) dates, (b) locations, (c) estimated costs, (d) participating foreign nations, if any and (e) principal ADF components planned to be involved in future planned exercises.


Mr Beazley —The answer to the right honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) Since July 1979 the ADF has conducted 304 joint and combined exercises which fulfil the criteria outlined in the honourable member's question. In the time available to research the information required it has not been possible to examine records for earlier years, and there are some gaps in information readily available in more recent years. The number of exercises conducted in each year examined is as follows:

1979 (latter half only)...

9

1980...

28

1981...

29

1982...

46

1983...

39

1984...

42

1985...

49

1986...

50

1987 (to April only)...

12

Total...

304

(2) The following table provides the information on name, location, purpose and cost of past exercises. It should be noted that the costs listed are not brought to a common base, either in dollar terms or in costing methods which have evolved over the years.

(3) The table also indicates which exercises were combined with another nation's forces, which nations were involved and which of their units took part.

(4) For the remainder of 1987 there are 7 joint (ADF alone) exercises and 58 combined exercises with forces of other nations planned. For 1988 there are 9 joint and 61 combined exercises planned.

(5) Details of future exercises are classified and therefore are not available to be released.
