Mr ATKINSON (WILMOT, TASMANIA) asked the Minister for the Navy, upon notice -

1.   Whether he has seen a statement in the Launceston Examiner of the 23rd July last to the effect that the American Department of Commerce published a report received from the United States Consul in Sydney suggesting the advisability of diverting oil-burning ships from the Australian trade owing to the acute fuel shortage in Australia, which is said to be a matter of grave concern to the Australian Navy?

2.   Is the statement correct?
