Mr STEWART (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport. What control do Australian port authorities have over ships carrying overseas registration, in relation to the safety of passengers and cargo and the seaworthiness of the vessels? Are regular inspections made of all ships using Australian ports to ensure that life jackets, life boats and other similar gear are in ample supply and in first class condition? If not, why not?
