Senator HENDRICKSON asked the Minister representing the Prime Minister, upon notice-'

1.   Is it a fact that Holden motor cars are now being fully assembled in the Philippines, Indonesia, South Africa, and New Zealand; that the majority of these cars are left hand drive specials, and that they do not present any difficulties in regard to servicing?

2.   Have 60,000 Holden cars been shipped to 60 export markets in addition to regular shipments to New Guinea and Papua and the Solomon Islands?

3.   As the Japanese car manufacturer is making an all out drive to capture trade in Australia and to defeat the Australian product in some of our new found markets, will the Government issue a directive that Australian Government instrumentalities abroad exclusively use Australia made motor cars for all official purposes?
