Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Is it not time that the Commonwealth Government moved in to remedy the failure of other public authorities and private interests to provide proper wharfs and cargo facilities at ports such as Sydney? As the Government, under its trade and commerce power, now regulates the use of manpower on the wharfs, will it consider regulating also the physical set up so as to eliminate the notorious inefficiency of our ports which impedes our foreign and interstate commerce?
