Mr CURTIN (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for the Navy. Is it a fact that his Department proposes to call tenders for the lease of Garden Island and Williamstown dockyards and workshops? If so, does this mean that we are to make another handout to overseas private enterprise of valuable naval defence industrial equipment? As this report is causing considerable disquiet in metal trade union circles, would the Minister give some information to the House as to its truth or otherwise?
