Mr HULME (PETRIE, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Supply) - I am pleased to tell the honorable member that my department has been able to make the Avalon airfield available for this display on 6th December. I believe it will be a display of outstanding merit. In addition to the assistance to be given by my own department, including a static display of the Jindivik and the Malkara, a number of Commonwealth departments will give their co-operation, particularly the Department of Air, the Department of Civil Aviation and the Department of the Navy. We shall also have the co operation of Qantas, the two principal internal airlines, British missile firms, and the Victorian Aero Club. I am pleased to say that the Victorian police also will cooperate. There will be no difficulty in relation to the admission of the crowd that is expected. There will be no danger to the people attending, and no difficulty in relation to security aspects.
