Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I am unable to give the exact number of the owners of vessels engaged in this industry, but when I was administering the Home and Territories Department I had to deal with the applications of the owners of these vessels for licences to employ coloured labour. I know that there was then a comparatively small number of owners of single vessels. Some owners possessed as many as twenty vessels.
