Mr LYONS - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes.

2.   An expert committee, comprising Sir George Julius as chairman and Professor W. J. Dakin, of the University of Sydney, and Mr. A. W. Wood, late Director of Fisheries of New South Wales, as members, recommended recently that every effort should be made by the Commonwealth Government, with the cooperation of private enterprise, to determine the fundamental data that is now lacking in connexion with fisheries ; also that, with a view to formulating a definite policy, the Development Branch of the Prime Minister's Department and the Commonwealth Council for Scientific and Industrial Research be asked to submit a joint report. Both these bodies have been asked to submit a report. The report of the expert committee did not contain any recommendation involving the purchase of a trawler, and, at present, there is no such proposal before the Government. 3 and 4. See reply to 2.
