Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) . - I can not see my way clear to accept the sug gested amendment. What is done by the Bill is to bring under one clause all the scattered provisions relatingto the rating of seamen. Under the original Act fire men and greasers and able seamen who are rated at the time of the passing of the Act are entitled to be so rated, and we propose to treat shipwrights and carpenters in exactly the same way.I think that clause 14 fully safeguards the position, butI shall look into the matter between now and to-morrow.

Progress reported.
