Senator MILLEN - My honorable friend will perhaps understand the reason for my answer when I say that I would like him to repeat his question in a day or two.

Senator PEARCE asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

Will he lay on the table of the Senate any report by Admiral Henderson, in which that officer recommended the laying down of a graving dock at Cockburn Sound, as stated by the Honorable Minister in his speech in the Senate, on 27th August, on the Supply Bill?

Senator MILLEN - What I referred to was that portion of Admiral Henderson's printed report, on page 56, which reads as follows: - " Fremantle,

(a)   Special Requirements - The harbor of Cockburn Sound, including Owen's Anchorage and Jervoise Bay, to be examined thoroughly as soon as possible by experts, with a view to locating the site of the future Naval Dockyard. The site should include space for graving docks, building slips, work-shops, storehouses, and all plant, &c., for the building of ships and for the repairs and maintenance of a fleet."
