Mr ASTON (PHILLIP, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is addressed to the Minister for Supply, arises from a recent decision by the Department of Civil Aviation that all Australian airlines' aircraft must be equipped with a baton and two pairs of handcuffs. I ask the Minister: Has the Lithgow Small Arms Factory been approached by local airlines to manufacture and supply handcuffs? Further, has the Department of Supply sought orders from the airlines for handcuffs and, if so, has it been successful?
