Mr BRYANT (WILLS, VICTORIA) - I address my question- to the Minister for Defence. Upon what military advice was the decision taken to send a squadron of Centurion tanks to Vietnam when it has been found almost impossible to use them even on exercises in Australia? Upon what occasions has heavy armour been found to be effective in guerrilla warfare in jungle country? Does he agree with the statement that was made by the Minister for the Army in the House that the tanks will be useful for pursuing Vietcong through minefields?
