Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - When Senator Millen was replying upon the motion for the second reading of this Bill, I understood him to say that the sheer-legs on Garden Island which belonged to the Imperial establishment, are the only sheer-legs available for lifting heavy machinery out of the holds of vessels, and that it is proposed to construct a wharf into deep water so that stronger sheer-legs may be added to that establishment. In view of the want of knowledge on the part of the Vice-President of the Executive Council regarding this matter, I would suggest that the item be postponed.
