Mr KEATING (BLAXLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Supply. Has his attention been drawn to a recent report in the 'Australian' stating that the Government has abandoned the joint British Aircraft Corporation and Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation project for the development and manufacture of a swing-wing supersonic attack trainer known as the AA107? Is the substance of the report in accordance with the facts? Has the Government decided to scrap this project? May I point out to the Minister that this project is the last hope for the Australian aircraft industry to undertake a major military development to save the industry from virtual collapse?
