Senator McCOLL - I am glad to say that I have a reply, which reads as follows: -

With reference to the attached extract from Hansard, forwarded by you on the 23rd instant, I am directed by the Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Groom) to say that with regard to the marked portion thereof there is not, nor has there been, any misunderstanding whatever between the present Government and the Imperial Government in regard to the Navigation Act. His Majesty's assent to the Bill was given without reservation of any kind.
