Mr JAMES - Will the Deputy Prime Minister inform me whether the committee appointed to make recommendations concerning the immobilization of small craft has yet presented its report? Does the honorable gentleman consider that it was necessary for the committee to travel all over Australia in order to prepare its report? Where can I make contact with the members of the committee? Is the Minister aware that many of the small craft involved in this matter are suffering serious deterioration through being continually in the water, where they are becoming infested with marine growths, and that many other boats which have been pulled up on the banks out of the water are being ruined because they are not being sheltered? Cannot something be done immediately to return boats to owners who are able to care for them better than they are being cared for at present?
