Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - I move -

That the word " Fifty," line 10, be left out, with a view to insert the words " One hundred " in lieu thereof.

In my opinion, a penalty of£50 or three months' imprisonment is altogether an inadequate one to inflict upon persons who are convicted of crimping. In New South Wales it has had very little effect. The evidence which the Navigation Commission collected there shows that crimping operations are most profitable. If we wish to put down this practice, we can accomplish our purpose only by inflicting a severe penalty.
