Mr HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Supply) - The agreement between the Commonwealth and Fabrique Nationale of Belgium was for the manufacture of the FN rifle in Australia for our own use and for export to New Zealand. A further provision in the agreement, however, gave to the Commonwealth the right to make application to the company for special licences to export to other countries. Such permission has been obtained and we are exporting to other countries.
