Mr JAMES - Is the Minister for the Army aware that, as the result of the Government's policy to immobilize small craft, about 2,000 boats have been taken from the water at Lake Macquarie and placed a short distance from the shore, where they are deteriorating through exposure to the weather and the ravages of white ants? Does the Minister not think that it would be better to allow owners to form themselves into groups to take charge of the craft in order to preserve them, and to charge those groups with the responsibility of destroying the boats in the event of an invasion?
