Mr Snedden asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice:

How many non-Australian military personnel are currently stationed or training in Australia, what are their ranks and where are they stationed.


Mr Barnard - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The number of non-Australian military personnel in Australia varies from day to day and may, over the course of 12 months, vary as much as 20 per cent. A principal reason is that very few training courses, involving foreign personnel, are held in the December/ January period. Consequently the number of foreign personnel training in Australia is small during the summer period but reaches a peak in mid-year.

At the end of April, 1973, there were, in all, 1,168 nonAustralian military personnel in Australia, of whom 341 were officers and 827 were other ranks. These personnel were stationed or were training at the following 79 establishments:
