Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - I am not precisely informed in this matter, for the very good reason that statistics of the performance of Russian aircraft are not ordinarily published by the Russians. Any difference between the Sabres used by the Nationalist Chinese and the Sabres of the Royal Australian Air Force would, I think, be in our favour, because, as the House well knows, we have fitted the American Sabre airframe with the British Rolls-Royce Avon engine, thereby giving the aircraft a higher performance.
