Senator SAYERS (Queensland) . - Since the resumption of the- sitting the discussion has turned on the position of British ships. Suppose that a French or German boat with passengers calls at Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney, will the same law apply to her?

Senator McGregor - Not unless she is carrying passengers from port to port in Australia.

Senator Lt Colonel Sir Albert Gould - A foreign ship can come here without any of these restrictions being placed upon her.

Senator McGregor - She can come here without any officers at all.

Senator SAYERS - But suppose that she drops some passengers at Fremantle and takes up others there.

Senator Lt Colonel Sir Albert Gould - She cannot take up any passengers at that port. She can only carry passengers on a through journey from her first port of clearance.
