Mr HAYDEN (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - =1 ask the Minister for Air a question. In view of the fact that the delivery date of the controversial Fill aircraft recedes ever further with the passing of each month, has his attention been drawn to a statement at page 3 in the authoritative international publication the " New York Times " weekly international edition of 23rd January 1966, that the Fill bomber is regarded by the United States Air Force as a poor substitute for the BS2 or BS8? Will he compare the abilities of the B52 and B58 with those of the F1M and indicate why his Government preferred the Fill, particularly in view of the inferior rating reportedly accorded it by the United States Air Force and its apparent indeterminate delivery date?
