Senator MULLAN (Queensland) . - The Minister has stated that it is rather unfortunate that reference should be made on these Estimates to political statements made outside. I agree that it is rather unfortunate that members of the party to which the honorable senator belongs should stoop so low as to try to make political capital out of such an unfortunate disaster as the wreck of the Yongala. It is well known that when that disaster took place members of the honorable senator's party were the first in the field to lay the cause of it at the door of the Labour party because they had not done more than they did in lighting the Queensland coast. That is why I direct attention now to the necessity of the Government of which the honorable senator is a member doing something to provide the necessary lights on that coast. Progress reported.
