Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to either the Minister representing the Minister for Shipping and Transport or the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service because the matter may come under the safely division of the Department of Labour and National Service. Can the Minister inform the Senate whether machinery used for the discharge of cargoes on wharves in Australia is examined regularly by any safety officer prior lo its operation? Is he aware that cargo weighing 25 tons fell from a ship at the Newstead wharf on Monday afternoon last? Will he make available a copy of the report that should be submitted on the reasons for such accident?
