Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Prime Minister will recall that on several occasions the Ministers representing him in the Senate have replied to questions about the purchase of 6 DC3 aircraft from Jetair Australia Limited, and they have asserted that an acceptance of an Australian offer of aircraft was received from Cambodia on 8th January last year. I ask the right honourable gentleman how he explains that the documents tabled in the Senate indicated no such acceptance until more than a month after that date. Does he recall what was the nature of the communication of 8th January 1971? Will he table that communication?

Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - I do not know the details associated with this matter. 1 will have a discussion with the department about it.
