Mr BENSON (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - My question to (he Prime Minister relates to the three miles off shore limit. Is the right honorable gentleman aware that many countries have extended the three miles off shore limit to 12 miles? As the Australian continental shelf extends in many places beyond the three miles limit, I ask the honorable gentleman: What steps would be necessary to preserve oil interests and fishing interests which lie beyond this limit?

Mr Harold Holt - I will ask the Attorney-General to answer the question.
