Senator FITZGERALD (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Can he advise what the present position is between the Government and the R. W. Miller organisation, with ils coastal oil tanker fleet? Can he advise whether it is true that the only shipping company paying full award rates and giving full award conditions to its employees is R. W. Miller and Co. Pty. Ltd? What interest prompts the Government to support foreign owned shipping companies, employing cheap labour, against this Australian company? Finally, is it not true that men who have done far less to promote industry in this country have been knighted, whilst everything possible has been done to crucify this man R. W. Miller?
