The right hon. Gentleman would agree that Mr. Malcolm Fraser's offer during the Falklands crisis to allow us to keep HMS "Invincible", if we so wished, was extremely generous and helpful. I would rather leave the matter there for the moment. The Australian Cabinet knows of our wish to retain HMS "Invincible" and I do not foresee any problems in that regard. However, I am awaiting a communication on this subject from Mr. Sinclair.
