Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (Parramatta) (Attorney-General) , - The honorable member for Fremantle (Mr. Beazley) was good enough to call my attention to the position that he has rightly detailed to the committee, and he showed me the draft of the amendment that he has moved. I have had this question looked into and, if I may say so, I am satisfied that some provision ought to be included to make this bill paramount not only over the Navigation Act in respect of seamen, but also over any other legislation of a like kind that might be in either the Commonwealth statutes or the ordinances of the Territories. I have asked the honorable member whether he would be content with my assurance that I will see that, in another place, suitable words are inserted in this clause to give it paramountcy not only over the Navigation Act, but also over any other acts or ordinances that may stand in the way of the effectiveness of attachment. I understand that the honorable member is satisfied with that assurance.

Amendment - by leave - withdrawn.

Clause agreed to.

Proposed new clause 97a.
