Mr Dedman n. - On the 26th July, the honorable member for Griffith (Mr. Conelan) asked a question concerning the use of SS. Delamere on the Queensland coastal service. The Minister for Supply and Shipping has supplied the following answer: -

The Delamere, which is one of the 2,500-ton vessels built to the order of the Commonwealth Government, has not been chartered to Messrs. John Burke Limited, but that firm has been appointed managing agents for the ship. During the vessel's maiden voyage it was found that some adjustments were necessary to the boilers, and the Delamereis expected to return to Sydney early next week for these adjustments to be made. It is expected that this work will occupy two or three weeks. When the vessel is again placed in commission, the trade in which it is placed will depend on the most urgent needs at the time. Should this be the Queensland coast, the vessel will be placed on that run, but it is not possible at the present time to make any definite fixture for the ship.
