Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I am not much concerned whether, for this offence, the penalty proposed is £50or £500,but. I point out to Senator Guthrie that the penalty imposed under this

Bill for an offence of the kind may amount to ^£150. First of all, he will see that under clause 26 there is a penalty of ,£50 for a man who engages seamen in contravention of the law, and there is a penalty of £50 for the other party to the business. Those who engage in the practice of crimping are not philanthropists, and will expect to receive payment for their services, and the honorable senator will see that if they do receive payment they will render themselves liable, under clause 30, to a further penalty of £50. There is, therefore, a double penalty provided for under this Bill for those who engage in the practice of crimping.
