Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - On 17th May Senator Bishop directed a question to me asking whether the report of the Department of Defence recommended a production run of 12 to 20 Project N aircraft. 1 can now advise that on 16th August the Minister for Defence said:

The Government has approved the production of an initial 20 Nomad aircraft - previously known as Project N. The estimated total project cost is SO.Olm in 1972 prices. Eleven of these aircraft will be provided to enable Army Aviation to carry out ils approved roles. The remaining 9 aircraft will bc for sale to other users.

I make available to the honourable senator a statement made by the Minister for Defence and also a statement made by the Prime Minister.
