Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - My question is directed to the Minister for . Supply. Has the American procurement programme known as 'Pave Coin' been drawn to the attention of the Minister? Is the programme designed to procure for the use of America's allies under the military assistance programme planes in utility, close support, strike and forward air controller categories? If so, would the Project N Aircraft be suitable for any of these categories? Has the Government brought Project N to the notice of American procurement authorities selecting aircraft under the 'Pave Coin' programme?

Mr GARLAND (CURTIN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Supply) - This matter has not been under my notice. I think that the questions which the Deputy Leader of the Opposition has linked with it ought really to be placed on the notice paper.
