Senator COLLINGS asked the Minister representing the Minister for Commerce, upon notice-

1.   Does the Minister for Commerce consider it important to encourage cadets to . enter the merchant shipping service in order to ensure a supply of trained officers, engine ratings and deck ratings?

2.   Is it a. fact that lack of suitable accommodation on deck has in the past prevented many lads who have already received preliminary training on land, from going to sea. as cadets?

3.   Does the Minister think it desirable, in regard to the new merchant vessels which are to be built for the Commonwealth Government, to provide sufficient extra deck accommodation to house such cadets and boys?
