Naval Base at Post Stephens.


Mr Street t. - On the 3rd May, the honorable member for Newcastle (Mr. Watkins) asked if consideration had been given to the development of Port Stephens as a naval base?

I am now in a position to inform the honorable member that consideration has been given to the development of Port Stephens as a naval base, and the advantages of the port are well known to the naval authorities. Funds available, are, however, required for naval projects, of a more urgent nature, and the present Naval Development Programme does not provide for any work to be undertaken at Port Stephens.
