Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - The question of the honorable member for Lilley refers to a notable achievement of the Department of Supply and associated bodies in obtaining a contract for the sale of this wholly Australian-developed weapon to the British Army. The weapons being sold to the British Army are being entirely manufactured in Australia. They are being manufactured at the Government aircraft factory, which developed the weapon in conjunction with the Aeronautical Research

Laboratories and the Weapons Research Establishment. The honorable member asked me whether the Government aircraft factory was able to maintain the delivery schedule. I understand that it is, and that there is no difficulty at all in meeting requirements for the delivery of the weapons.
