Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - I am aware of some difficulties about the price being charged for beer in canteens of the Royal Australian Air Force. The matter is being closely considered by the Air Board and by the management of the canteen service. I have no doubt that action will be taken to consider this matter and to act as wisdom determines. As for the honorable member's further suggestion, that the morale of the Royal Australian Air Force is greatly affected by this matter, let me say that I have much more respect for the personnel of the Royal Australian Air Force than to imagine that their morale depends upon the price of beer.
