Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - All the information available to me indicates that the clothing issued to our troops in Vietnam is as satisfactory as and, in some instances, more satisfactory than that issued to other troops operating in areas of this kind. Because of the climatic conditions, additional issues of certain items are made over and above what would be issued in Australia. Honorable members will appreciate the reasons for this. Even though we may believe that the clothing issued is satisfactory, there is always the possibility of improvement and, therefore, there is continuing research in Australia and an exchange of information between ourselves, the United States of America and the United Kingdom on these matters.
