Mr Snedden asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice:

Did he tell the National Press Club on 15 March 1973 that consultations had begun with the Government of Fiji on the possibility of providing military training in Australia for the Royal Fiji Military Forces; if so, what stage has been reached in the consultations.

Mr Barnard - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As I indicated to the National Press Club in March, we are exploring in consultation with the Fijian authorities, the possibility of increasing training assistance in Australia to members of the Fijian Armed Services. This year there have been six Fijians on Army training courses in Australia.
