Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for the Army. Has the Armalite rifle, which is being used by Australian servicemen in Vietnam, yet been evaluated by the Department of the Army? If so, what decision was reached? If the weapon has been accepted, will early arrangements be made for its production at the Commonwealth Small Arms Factory at Lithgow and thus assure an Australian supply of weapons required by our servicemen?
