Sir PHILIP MCBRIDE (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - The development of " Malkara " was a project undertaken jointly by the Australian Government and the British Government. It has gone forward to the point that it is now being prepared for field trials by the British Government. As General Garrett said, the Australian Army has not decided to make use of " Malkara ", but I can assure the honorable member that its development and the field trials that are to take place will be watched very closely by the Army. When those trials are completed, a final decision will be made.
