Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I am surprised at the view of this question taken by some honorable senators. Is it not self-evident that the fact that the character and work of a seaman was so good as to lead to his reengagement would be quite sufficient to satisfy a future employer that it would be safe to engage him.

Sentor Turley. - Not necessarily.

Senator McGREGOR - I think it would. But, apart from that altogether, I can indicate the importance which I attach to the matter by saying that, if the objection is pressed, I shall not call for a division. I hope that no further time will be wasted in discussing the question.
