Sir WILLIAM LYNE (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - It is the intention of the Government to take over the control of navigation by-and-by. At present they propose to deal only with lighthouses. The question of talking over navigation is one entirely apart from that relating to the light-houses, and the report of the Navigation Commission, and a number of important considerations, will have to be carefully weighed before action is taken.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - To what extent are the light-houses to be taken over? For instance, will the Commonwealth take over the light-houses inside Port Phillip Bay, or only those outside?

Sir WILLIAM LYNE - Speaking from memory, I think we shall take over only those that are outside Port Phillip.
