Senator PALTRIDGE - With respect, I think that the honorable senator has moved from a position where she asked for a static base to be established in a particular area to the question of the deployment of ships. Obviously, the deployment of these ships will depend entirely upon where the Navy is operating, either in peacetime or in wartime. If it is operating in the Indian Ocean and it appears that it will >be operating there for some length of time, I imagine that it would not be unlikely that such ships might be based, while operating in the Indian Ocean, in Fremantle. When they were operating in other localities removed from the western coast they would be appropriately based.
