Mr MARKS (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I again draw attention to the continued pollution of Sydney Harbor with oil and debris of various kinds. Personally, I am satisfied with the explanation of the Treasurer (Sir Joseph Cook) given when he was Minister for the Navy, and with the personal assurance of my good friend Commodore

Dumaresq, who is in charge of the Fleet, that he is doing everything possible, but considers that merchant ships might also be responsible. I ask the Minister for the Navy, however, if he will confer with the Sydney Harbor Trust so that something may be done to abate the nuisance. What was "our lovely harbor " is becoming " our polluted harbor."
