Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) - - If the marine engine-driver's certificates mentioned by Senator E. J.Russell are certificates held by "officers" in the State of Victoria, the same persons will clearly be officers under this Bill, and their privileges are safeguarded under clause 21. But the question arises as to whether they are or are not officers under the Victorian Mercantile Shipping Act. I agree with Senator Pearce that if the statement be correct that they are equal to what are termed third-class engineers in other States, they must be officers.
