Mr JONES (NEWCASTLE, VICTORIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Is the Union Steam Ship Company of New Zealand Limited one of the major shipping companies operating on the Australian coast? Is this company calling for tenders in Australia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom for the construction of two 5,500-ton ships for use on the Australian coast? Is it necessary for this company to obtain Government approval to have these vessels built overseas? If so, has this approval been granted? Will the Commonwealth ship-building subsidy of 33i per cent, be paid on these ships if they are built in Australian shipyards?
