Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - I should like to know what the word "justice" would cover if - a vessel were in a foreign, port. Suppose that a ship reaches a foreign port, and that one of its seamen who has made a will dies there-

Senator Guthrie - Provision is made for that contingency. The British Consul acts in such cases.

Senator CHATAWAY - In many parts of the British dominions no justices are to be found. I would further point out that the term "justice" is usually associated with a Judge of the High Court. Do I understand that this' clause applies exclusively to British dominions?

Senator Pearce - Tn foreign ports there are British Consuls, whose services are available.

Senator CHATAWAY - Then the clause does not cover foreign ports?

Senator Pearce - Yes.
