Mr RIORDAN (KENNEDY, QUEENSLAND) - Is the Minister for Defence aware that Queensland is almost completely undefended? Is he aware that there are no defence works north of Brisbane, and that, in consequence, 1,500 miles of the most vulnerable part of our coastline is without defence? Does the Government propose to take any steps to provide Queensland with an adequate defence system, and, if so, what is the nature of the defence works which it will undertake ?
