Mr Melham asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 18 August 2003:

In respect of each visit to an Australian port by a nuclear powered warship during the period January 1992 to July 2003, (a) what was the name and nationality of the visiting warship, (b) what was the type or class of the warship, (c) which Australian port did the warship visit, and (d) what were the dates of arrival and departure from the port.


Mrs Vale (Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence) —The Minister for Defence has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

Defence does not have reliable data prior to 1996 on nuclear powered warship visits. Additional information regarding nuclear powered warship visits prior to 1996 may be available in archives, however it would require more time and resources to be accessed. Information answering the honourable member's question from 1996 onwards is contained in the attached table. In this period, there was a total of 86 nuclear powered warship visits to Australian ports.
