Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - This clause deals with what is to be done in certain cases, in regard to the adoption of a general code. It scarcely touches the question which has been raked by Senator Findley. I may tell the honorable senator, however, that the whole matter of wireless telegraphy is under consideration by the Government, who have every desire to adopt a unified system, both on land and sea, around Australia. We have already provided in the Act of 1912 that vessels carrying more than fifty passengers must be fitted with wireless installations, and this clause will compel them to use those installations in such a way as will confer a great advantage upon the travelling public.
