Mr MENZIES - As to the second part of the question, I am sure my honorable friend will agree that that would involve producing many volumes. I will not undertake that task. As for the fabulous hovercraft, it is in its very, very early experimental stages. I do not think that anybody would imagine that the time has come to be considering seriously the hovercraft as an instrument of transport which could be used under certain circumstances in Australia. Our people concerned, of course, keep a close eye on these developments, bt« I would not like to encourage the idea that this new - what shall I call it? - vehicle has yet reached the stage of development at which one could consider its applicability in practical terms to various places and problems in Australia.
