Mr WHITLAM - I ask a question of the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Why has he proclaimed nearly all the sections of the Navigation Act 1958 except those few which would enable Australia to ratify half a dozen International Labour Organization maritime conventions which were signed in 1936, 1946 and 1949? I also ask: When will the Department of Shipping and Transport make a contribution to the reducing of Australia's backlag of unratified conventions, which is already the largest in the English-speaking world?
