Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - I move -

That in sub-clause 3 all the words after " crew," where second occurring, be left out.

The clause provides that steam-ships shall provide an adequate supply of hot fresh water for the use of all members of the crew employed in connexion with their engines. I maintain that if. is just as necessary that the whole of the crew shall be supplied with hot fresh water as that the members of the engine-room staff shall be so supplied. It is absolutely necessary to provide seamen who are engaged upon our colliers with hot fresh water. I do not think that the Minister of Defence will object to my amendment.
