Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - This clause provides that where salvage of less thanĀ£1,000 is payable, the receiver shall distribute it amongst those who are entitled to it, as he may think fit ; and the next clause provides that where salvage amounting to more thanĀ£1,000 is payable, it shall be distributed by a Court of competent jurisdiction. My own idea is that all claims should be settled by a Court, and not by an individual. Subclauses 3 and 4 should, therefore, be omitted. I move -

That sub-clause 3 be left out.

A good deal of dissatisfaction exists at the present time because of the way in which salvage is distributed by the receiver. I hope that the Minister will accept the amendment which seeks to lay down one rule in connexion with all salvage.
