Mr FREETH (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Shipping and Transport) - The details given by the honorable member are approximately correct. On the expiration of the first period referred to by the honorable member an extension of time in which to place an order was granted to Mr. Miller's company. That extension was to the 1st March last. I understand that Mr. Miller's company is still in communication with the Australian Shipbuilding Board over some details regarding possible designs and specifications. The Government does not want to take any unnecessary action which might preclude Mr. Miller's company from placing an order, and therefore no action has been taken as at the present time.
