Senator PRIMMER (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Defence. Is it a fact that the Department of Supply is carrying out research on fragmentation bombs and similar devices designed to cause death and injury to persons rather than damage to real estate and machines? Are these bombs similar in type to those used by the United States forces in Vietnam against civilian populations?

Senator WRIGHT - The honourable senator's question involves technical as well as intricate defence matters, so I ask that it be put on notice.
