Mr LAZZARINI - The graving dock is being constructed in conformity with an agreement made at a conference between my department and certain State authorities. It is considered that the risk of being without a graving dock is greater than the risk of lighting the area so that continuous operations may be maintained. It is on the principle of putting first things first that the area is being illuminated, for by that means work is possible at high pressure for 24 hours a day.

Mr Perkins - It is making the Sydney brown-out a farce.

Mr LAZZARINI - That cannot be avoided.
