Mr RILEY (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for the Navy had wireless communication from the Renown respecting the accident in Sydney Harbor yesterday, when a launch, on board of which was the Prime Minister, bumped that vessel? I wish to know if the Renown has been damaged


Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - Any damage done to the Renown will be made good.


Mr RILEY - And if injury was caused to the Prime Minister and his Secretary, who, I understand, were thrown on their backs? Is the Renown still seaworthy, notwithstanding the attempt of the Prime Minister to prevent her from going to sea?
