Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - Senator Keatingintimated to me his intention to maltĀ© some inquiries about the proposed establishment of a quarantine station at LaneCove, Sydney Harbor. I regret that 1 am not in a position to give the honorable senator the assurance he asks for - that the site has been abandoned - but T can say that no further action has been taken in regard to it, and inquiries arebeing made with respect to other sites. On a previous occasion I joined with Senator Keating in expressing regret that it should be necessary to establish a quarantine station at such a beautiful' site in Sydney Harbor. I shall give my personal attention to the matter, and at a later stage will report to Senator Keating what can be done. In answer to another inquiry by the honorable senator, IT may say that, in the matter of the Launceston boat sheds, instructions have been ..given that the work is to be carried out at once.
