Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - I move -

That after the word " any," line 4, the word "master" be inserted.

The reason for this amendment is that in the earlier part of the clause the master is included, lt is provided that if the master receives any hurt or injury and the owner is put to expense that expense shall be defrayed by the owner without any deduction from . the wages due to the master. The amendment makes the latter part of the clause also apply to th?- roaster. The word was left out by som* accident in drafting.

Amendment agreed to. Clause consequentially amended and agreed to.
