Senator PALTRIDGE - I shall refer this question to the Minister for the Navy to get a complete answer for Senator Drury, but 1 suggest that when the honorable senator appears to give credibility to some newspaper report to the effect that the " Duchess " is a naval white elephant, he allows himself to be easily deluded. " Duchess " did have some minor engine trouble, 1 believe, and this is probably the basis of the report which has led the honorable senator into accepting the entirely false statement that " Duchess " is a white elephant. I will obtain a full answer for him.
