Mr KILLEN (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Defence) - I reject the crude impeachment by the honourable member for Melbourne Ports. What the honourable member failed to put into his question is that in my reply to him I indicated that I was not prepared to allocate vast resources to do an extraordinary amount of research in order to answer his question. If the honourable gentleman has a specific contract in mind, I would be only too happy to facilitate the supply of information for him. But I appeal to the honourable gentleman to acknowledge the fact that to go back over 6, 8 or 10 years as he requested me to do would require an extraordinary amount of manpower, and I am simply not prepared to waste manpower in that fashion.
