Mr PEACOCK - This question should properly have been put to my colleague the Minister for Defence. I cannot give an answer to the first part of the honourable member's question. From the top of my head 1 could not give the figures to him. In the last part of his question he raises a matter that is currently under negotiation and the Minister for Defence, I am sure, would be able to give the information to him. If he wishes to draw inferences in relation to the stationing of our troops in Malaysia, as newspaper reports that I have seen suggest he does, or from the fact that Terendak is a very fine establishment that could be and is at present being used by the Malaysians, I would remind him that in the short term the problem of positioning our own troops has been solved and that our long term involvement in the area and accommodation for our troops will be dealt with by the Minister for Defence.

Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - May 1 also answer the question?
