(Statement by the Minister for Supply, Senator Ken Anderson)

The British-Australian_ Joint Project work load at ioomera.,

up to 1972, will be significantly greater than what was expected when this Project was renewed for four years in May 1968.

The Minister for Supply, Senator Ken Anderson, said this in

Canberra today (11March 19) .

Senator Anderson said: "Last May I mentioned . the program of work at the Woomera. Range for the next two or three years.

"Since then I have made other statements concerning future

work prospects at Woomera.

For some months it had become apparent that the Woomera. work

load, up to 1972, would be significantly greater than we believed to be the case last year.

91I am pleased to be able to say that this trend has been confirmed during discussions just concluded between British and

Australian officials in Canberra.

"Employment opportunities will therefore continue to be

available at Woomera for at least the next three years",.
