Mr JONES - My question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport is: Was R. W. Miller and Co. Pty. Ltd. given permission to import three oil tankers for the coastal trade on condition that it lodged a bond of $1 million and undertook that it would place within a limited time orders with an Australian shipyard' or shipyards for three tankers? Did this time limit expire in respect of the first two tankers on 29th June 1 965? Have tenders been called? When do they close? If they have closed, has an order been placed? Does the Government intend holding R. W. Miller and Co. Pty. Ltd. to its guarantee, and what does the Government propose doing with the SI million bond?
