Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I should like to add to what Senator Needham has said, that if we are to be so exceedingly careful, we should require a notice to be posted informing passengers that there are knives on board a vessel, which, if properly used, might cut throats. So we might go on ad infinitum. If Senator Stewart has no better amendment to suggest, I would ask him to rely upon those who will haveto define what are dangerous goods. If it is necessary to be so careful as the honorable senator suggests, there ought to be a notice at the top of a ship's companionway, " Please do not fall down this ladder." When the honorable senator has been shown how ridiculous his suggestion is, I hope he will not press it.
