Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - When we were dealing with the question of the manning scale in connexion with cargo steam-ships, Senator Millen drew attention to a class of - vessels which usually carry cargo, but which occasionally carry passengers. - He pointed out that unless an exemption were made in their favour they would have to be manned in accordance with the scale which applies to passenger steamers. It is obvious that that is not desired, and accordingly I move -

That before the words " Cargo Steamships," and within the brackets, the words " Passenger Steamships carrying not more than ten passengers and " be inserted.

Then this manning scale will apply to passenger steam-ships carrying not more than ten passengers as well as to cargo steamers.
