Mr MENZIES - I am not the Minister in charge of Rolls Royce cars, so I cannot answer the honorable member's question. However, the question- induces in- me certain whimsical reflections, because the honorable member spoke about cars built in Australia^ The greatest quantity of cars built in- Australia- is built by a company of American derivation - General MotorsHolden's. Limited-.

Mr Peters - That firm provides work for Australians.

Mr MENZIES - That is fine. But when the Government buys aircraft from the United States, one of the honorable member's colleagues wants to know why it does not buy aircraft powered by Rolls Royce engines. I am afraid that the Government is gone, one way or the other.
