Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - I think that the difference between Senator Stewart's amendment and clause 253 is the difference between tweedledum and tweedledee. By his proposal, Senator Stewart seeks to obtain a definition of " dangerous goods."

Senator Stewart - I do not seek anything of the kind.

Senator NEEDHAM - My honorable friend need not get angry. In moving his amendment he compared it with clause 253, in which there is no definition of " dangerous goods." He also accused the Committee of approaching the consideration of this question in a spirit of levity. I have no intention of approaching the consideration of any clause of the Bill in that spirit. Senator Sayers has said that dynamite is carried by sailing ships to a far greater extent than is coal. I would remind that honorable senator, who is about to resume his place-

Senator Sayers - I have not been out of my place.

Senator NEEDHAM - The honorable senator is out of it now.

Senator Sayers - I wish the honorable senator would not make such misstatements. I have not been outside the chamber.

Senator NEEDHAM - I do not know why the honorable senator should get so wild. I merely said that he was out of his place.
