Senator KEEFFE (QUEENSLAND) - Is the Minister for Air aware that there are 4 DC Royal Australian Air Force aircraft at Laverton air base and that currently they are not being used? Is the Minister prepared to recommend to the Government that these aircraft be donated or lent to Bangladesh to assist in relief work in that country?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Air) - All aircraft that are surplus to RAAF requirements are turned over to the Department of Supply for disposal, usually by tender. However, I will convey the question asked by the honourable senator to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, who I think is responsible for this particular matter, and get some information for him.
