Senator BRAND asked the Minister representing the Minister for the Army, upon notice -

1.   Is it the intention of the Government to implement Major-General SirIven Mackay's recommendation for closer Royal Australian Air Force co-operation so that, if and when the Australian Military Forces become engaged in active operations, there will not be a repetition of the disadvantageunder which AustralianImperial Force divisions went into action in the Middle East?

2.   Is it a fact that the enemy's successes have been due to the Nazi air squadrons being placed entirely at the disposal of German Divisional Commanders to whom the enemy airmen report direct for orders and instructions ?
