Mr HOWSON (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) (Minister for Air) - The quick answer to all these questions is " No ". The Prime Minister announced in this House last November the three year programme in which 10 Orion aircraft were to be bought for the R.A.A.F. for delivery towards the end of 1968. That programme still stands. There are some people, mainly in the aircraft factory at the Lockheed company, who for obvious reasons desire to see earlier delivery, but delivery is still scheduled for that time. That is when we want them and when we will get them.
