Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I think that the insertion of the words proposed by the Minister of Defence will meet the requirements of the case. I know how the difficulty to which reference has been made, operated in Western Australia some time ago. In that case the crew of a vessel were engaged in Adelaide by the Adelaide Steamship Company, and taken to Western Australia. Practically the whole of their work lay between Albany, Esperance, and Eucla. Its members were engaged on a regular run between those ports. They very seldom were afforded an opportunity to return to their home port, and to be paid off there. To meet such cases a clause of this kind is absolutely necessary.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Sitting suspended from 1.3 to 2.30 p.m.

Postponed clause 65 (No discharge necessary on immediate re-engagements).
