Mr Scholes asked the Minister for Supply, upon notice:

Will any proposals for a merger of the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation and the Government Aircraft Factories be presented to Parliament for ratification before any agreement is signed.

Mr Garland - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

An in-depth study of the practicability of a merger of the 2 organisations is now in progress. The study is a complex one however and it is not expected that any firm recommendations will be made to the Government until the early months of 1972. At this stage it is too early to say how the matter will be dealt with following Government consideration.
