Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - The meaning of the clause is fairly obvious. The seaman does not suffer in any case. If he begins work on his ship before the time specified in the agreement, he is to be paid from the time he goes on board. If, however, he does not go on board until the time specified, he has to be paid from the time the agreement commences. The clause makes the seaman's position perfectly safe.
