Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

In November 1970 invitations were forwarded by my Department to Chiefs of Air Staff of a number of countries for them and their wives to be guests of the RAAF during the celebrations connected with the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the RAAF. The invitation was extended to a representative should a Chief of the Air Staff be unable to attend.

The invitation covered a period of up to 6 days. The cost of hotel accommodation and transport while in Australia, estimated at $3,900 is at the expense of my Department. The cost of travel to and from Australia is the responsibility of the Governments of the countries concerned.
