Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Air a question in order to extend the political basis of this matter. Has the Royal Australian Air Force been engaged for some months in flying spare parts for the Fill aircraft from the United States to Richmond Royal Australian Air Force base? Is the amount of spare parts at present in Australia so great that it makes the cancellation of the ill-fated aircraft impossible without holding the Government up to ridicule? Could we have some estimate of the value and quantity of the spare parts by an early reply to my question No. 1220 on this subject which was placed on the notice paper on 14th May?

Senator ANDERSON - I am not aware of the information. If information is available I will obtain it for the honourable senator and the Senate.
