Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - Three steamers have been ordered for lighthouse construction. The arrangements are not quite complete, but I understand the tender is to be let to an Australian firm, the steamers to be built in Australia. The firm is recommended by the Department as quite suitable for the work. The earliest date at which it is expected that the first steamer will be completed is about twelve months, the others following in due course.
