Mr CHANEY (PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for the Navy) - Tenders for the 14 vessels for which contracts have been entered into were called not only in Australia but overseas as well. Amongst the tenders received was one from a firm in Western Australia. Because its capability was not known, technical experts from my Department and the Department of Supply went to Western Australia and had a look at the firm concerned. As the honorable member is aware, the contracts were let to Evans Deakin & Co. Pty. Ltd. and Walkers Ltd. of Queensland. All I can say about the other six vessels is that the details of their procurement have not yet been determined. However, I assure the honorable member that the contract for these will be let to an Australian firm.
