Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - In answer to the honorable member, Sir, there is one radar station in the Sydney area, situated at Brookvale. It is not manned on a 24-hour basis because, in accordance with the Government's assessment of the threats and our defence policy, there is no requirement for a 24-hour watch by the services at home. The station is manned for training purposes during working hours on week days. There is a continuous training programme for air force personnel both in operating this type of equipment and in maintaining it, and it is also used in exercises between the fightertraining units at Williamtown and the Canberra bombers from Amberley.
