Mr WIGHT (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - My question, which is directed to the Acting Minister for Supply, is based on a statement made in this House by the Minister for Supply some time ago regarding the Malkara anti-tank weapon. The Minister for Supply informed the House that the British Government had decided to equip the British Army with this weapon. I now ask the Minister whether the British Army is in fact being equipped with this weapon. If it is, is the weapon with which it is being equipped manufactured in the United Kingdom or in Australia? If the weapon is being manufactured in Australia, are we able to maintain supply at a rate satisfactory to the United Kingdom Government?
