Mr. LOVETT:

Yes. Having no harbour

whatever one can readily understand the difficulties under which the fishermen labour. There is no harbour or shelter of any kind; the fishermen simply have to get their boats in and out the best way they can.

Mr. LOVETT:

Perhaps I can answer the

hon. gentleman with greater exactness. This place has never had a wharf, breakwater nor slip of any kind. The fishing grounds are valuable and the proposed conveniences will render them very productive. The wharf will furnish these fishermen with a harbour which does not exist at the present time. I wish to tell the committee that the present lack of facilities renders the lot of the fishermen very hard. When they go out to fish they have to haul their boats down to the shore with oxen. On their return they have to haul their boats up from low water, which adds very greatly to the expense. The place is from fifteen to twenty miles from the railway and labours under a great handicap in that, respect. If ever an item in the estimates was justified this one certainly is. On previous occasions candidates of all parties have promised the people wharf facilities, with the-exception of myself. I told them I would not make any promise, and I did not do so, but that I would look after their interests in every way. However, I am glad to have this item in the estimates; it will certainly be a great help to the people of that section who stand so much in need of these facilities.

Mr. LOVETT:

About 700 people. The

cons.ruction of this wharf will bring a greater number of people there because the fishing grounds are good.
