Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - Surely Senator Guthrie has overlooked the fact that what it is intended shall be done under clause 28 is absolutely forbidden by clause 26. Even the GovernorGeneral cannot by proclamation annul an Act of Parliament. Either the amendment which has been moved by the VicePresident of the Executive Council, or that which I have put forward, will overcome thedifiiculty. The draftsman has evidently made a slip by failing to reconcile the provisions of clauses 28 and 26. I ask leave to withdraw my amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendments (by Senator McGregor) agreed to.

That after the word " superintendent," lines 1 and 8, the words "a seamen's inspector" be inserted.
