Mr TUDOR (Yarra) .- I have travelled on vessels on the coast of Australia which carried a greater number of passengers than the certificate warranted. I believe that at holiday times the Tasmanian boats, which undoubtedlyhave to face an exceedingly rough trip, during which accidents are quite possible - though there have not been any very serious accidents up to now - havebeen allowed to carry extra passengers; but I hope that such exemptions will not be permitted in the future.

Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - All these amendments simply bring our Act into line with the articles of the Convention.
