Mr HOLMAN asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Whether his attention has been directed to a paragraph in the Sydney Sun of the 22nd April last, relating to a scheme to reestablish the fishing industry?

2.   Is it a fact, as there stated, that the main feature of the proposal is to purchase from England a trawler which is to cost

£ 25,000?

3.   Has he considered in this connexion the possibility of having trawlers built at the Cockatoo Island Dockyard, Sydney?

4.   Will he, before determining on any definite course, obtain a report from his colleague, the Assistant Minister for Defence, as to the feasibility of building the trawler spoken of at the dock?
