Senator FRASER (Victoria) . - I am amazed to hear that this clause puts a handicap on British ships, as compared with foreign ships.

Senator Lynch - Oh, that yarn is played out.

Senator FRASER - I am surprised at the honorable senator.

Senator McColl - The Minister has admitted it.

Senator FRASER - The honorable senator's sense - indeed, more than his sense - is played out. What does he expect from any foreign country? Does he expect protection? He will not get it if he does. I would commend him honestly and zealously to rely upon Great Britain, who has been a good mother to us. I trust that the Minister will see his way to make some alteration in the clause if it handicaps the Mother Country.
