Senator LAUGHT (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Defence. I refer to a statement issued recently by the Minister wherein he stated that officers of the United States Department of Defence at present in Canberra are working on logistics aspects of the agreements between Australia and America that were signed recently in Washington. The Minister indicated that the aim was to develop as much as possible a utilisation of compatible materials at.d equipment in the armed forces of Australia and America. Will the Minister please expound this idea to the Senate, setting out in particular the range of materials and equipment he had in mind and which the armed forces of Australia might utilise under these agreements?
