Senator PALTRIDGE - The Prime Minister has provided the following answers to the honorable senator's questions -

1.   I understand that Holden motor cars are now being assembled in the Philippines, Indonesia, South Africa and New Zealand; that a left hand drive Holden has been developed for export to those areas which demand such a vehicle and that no difficulties have been experienced in servicing vehicles which have been exported.

2.   1 am informed that, since exports of Holdens began in 1954, over 60,000 had been shipped by 11th October 1964, either as complete vehicles or in knock down form.

3.   Australian made motor cars have been in use at Australian overseas missions since 1958, and at present there are 53 such vehicles in use at overseas posts. It is accepted policy to continue, and to expand as far as practicable, their use at these posts for official purposes.
