Senator DRURY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister representing the Minister for the Navy been directed to reports that the British destroyer " Duchess ", which is being loaned to Australia to replace the lost " Voyager ", is a naval white elephant? Is it a fact that the " Duchess " will cost £300,000 to refit? Is it also true that the destroyer was offered to Australia on loan on very handsome terms? Can the Minister tell the Senate what the terms are and when refitting of the vessel will be completed?
