Mr FRANCIS (Moreton) (5:10 AM) . - I support the request of the honorable member for Parramatta that the Treasurer shall explain why it has been found necessary to provide that the Minister may override the decisions of the Court of Marine Inquiry. It is a firm principle of British law that the courts shall in no way be interfered with by Ministers. I am certain that there must be some reason why this course is being taken, hut the Minister should make it clear to .us.
