Mr MAKIN - Perhaps, it will interest the honorable member to learn that on the 6th March last the superintendent of the Lockhart Mission Station reported to the naval officer in charge at Townsville that' a mine had been sighted near Cape Direction. Naval personnel were immediately despatched to that locality to render the mine harmless. The Department of the Navy is undertaking mine-sweeping in all Australian waters where mines are located in order to' render these waters absolutely safe for shipping.
