Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - 1 direct to the Minister for Defence Production a series of questions on guided rockets. Has Australia embarked on an expensive programme of defence employing supersonic guided rockets? Has a decision been made to import United States-manufactured rockets produced by the Douglas aircraft company? What is the cos; of the Uni e 1 Slates weapons, and how does the cost and quality of those weapons compare with those of similar weapons available from the United Kingdom? Has any consideration been given to the prospect of producing a suitable long-range rocket in Australia instead of importing such weapons from the United States?
