Mr SCHOLES (CORIO, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Air: Is it correct that aircraft which have been substantially manufactured in Australia have a better record for reliability than similar aircraft manufactured, and operated in the country where the type originated? If this is so, does the Minister consider that the running down of the Australian aircraft construction industry to such an extent that it has almost reached impotency is in the best interests of Australian defence and of the Royal Australian Air Force?
