Mr CLEAVER (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Is the Minister for Supply and Defence Production prepared to comment on the announcement by the United States Army of the adoption of the T.44 rifle as a new, standard weapon?

Despite the Minister's recent assurance regarding the FN. 30 rifle and the standardization of ammunition with that of the United States forces, this recent move could be taken as indicating that Australia's planned production is already outdated. I should be relieved to know that that is not so.
