Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) .-I would remind Senator Lynch that this clause deals with the loading and discharge of cargo and that his amendment, if made therein, would be somewhat incongruous. The words of the amendment do not actually express what he is aiming at. I was under the impression that what he wanted to provide for was a chain connexion with the wheel; that is. a chain running along the deck. It is certainly open to that construction.

Senator Lynch - It will be connected with that chain of course.

Senator PEARCE - The honorable senator wants a separate chain running along the deck?

Senator Lynch - No.

Senator PEARCE - We will accept the amendment if it is moved as new clause 249A, though I think it will have to be redrafted.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Clause agreed to.

Amendment (by Senator Lynch) proposed -

That the following new. clause be inserted; - " 249A. All ships registered in Australiaor engaged in" the coasting trade shall be provided with, an independent chain connexion to the rudder body ready for immediate adjustment in. case of emergency.

Penalty :Fifty pounds."
