Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - The Department of Air surveys the whole range of aircraft available in both the bomber and fighter fields. I am of the opinion that at the present time there is no suitable bomber aircraft available to replace the Canberra, though some are under development both in the United States and in Great Britain. I do not think that any good purpose would be served by naming all the aircraft in the fighter field which are being considered by the Royal Australian Air Force at present. I can assure the honorable member, however, that quite a number of them are under consideration.
