Senator TURNBULL (TASMANIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Supply: What was the price paid to the Department of Supply for the recent purchase of a surplus DC3 aircraft? To whom was the aircraft sold?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - In the past it has not been the policy of the Department to make available publicly the name of a successful tenderer or the purchase price of an aircraft. However, in recent times the Department has adopted a new policy of making the price and the name of the successful tenderer available to the unsuccessful tenderers. I understand that in this case the Minister is prepared to reveal the price received for the aircraft and the name of the successful tenderer. The successful tenderer was Mr Singh and the price received was $8,555. It is stipulated that the aircraft must be exported within 90 days of the date of sale, which was 14th April 1972.
