Mr WHITE - I ask the Minister for the Navy whether it is a fact that H.M.A.S. Shoalhaven has returned to Australia from Chinese waters? What was the reason for that ship's return at a time when Royal Navy ships are en route to China because of possible threats to Hong Kong? Was the use of Shoalhaven offered for collaboration with the Royal Navy ships before it was ordered to return to Australia? If not, why not?
