QUESTION WITHOUT NOTICE: Procurement for defence a laughing stock

Tweet about this post

Australian combat troops refuse to use the Austrian Steyr rifle, they use the American Armalite which can be produced in Australia for half the price.

At ANZAC Day soldiers marched in their socks since the soles had fallen off their Chinese made boots.

Australian ordinance/ammunition is manufactured mainly by a French owned company.

The slouch hat is partly foreign.

Will the Government support Rossi and the Senate’s demand for a full scale inquiry into procurement? Or remain free market, the policy destroying Australia’s manufacturing and gutting Australia’s sinews of war.
