Mr CHIFLEY - Last week, the honorable member for Flinders asked me a series of questions relating to Netherlands East Indies ships in Australian ports. As I stated then, ian explanation of -what had happened to that date had been prepared but as further negotiations in which the British authorities were " concerned were proceeding, I informed him that I desired to complete the statement before I supplied the information. To date, those negotiations have not been successful. If they are not completed, I shall give to the honorable member for Flinders a reply bringing the position up to date. I shall ascertain whether the Dutch authorities have offered the ships to the Commonwealth Government.
