Mr DAVIES (BRADDON, TASMANIA) - In addressing a question to the Minister for Shipping and Transport, I refer the honorable gentleman to a proposal by Captain Bob Houfe to construct a roll-on, roll-off type of cargo vessel for the King Island trade. I ask the Minister whether the Government has yet reached a decision on the application for a subsidy in connexion with the construction of this vessel. If it has not, can he give any information relating to the negotiations that are proceeding at present, especially any that may have relation to arrangements for finance or any other matter pertaining to this type of vessel?
