Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) . - I see there is an item of £8,000 for a trawler and equipments. I should like to know whether this vessel is intended particularly for use on the Western Australian coast. I ask the question because the item is under the heading of Western Australia, and that makes it appear as though the cost would be debited to that State.

Senator Playford - The item is under a different sub-division from that of Western Australia.

Senator PEARCE - I observe that in debate in another place this trawler and equipments were debited to Western Australia, and I should like to know whether the Government have yet decided on what part of the Australian coast the vessel will be used?
