Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - It will be seen that, under this clause, there are two offences. One is the offence of the masterwho takes his ship out, and the other is the offence of the owner who, knowingly or unknowingly, permits her to go to sea. But there is only one penalty. In the event of an offence being committed, is the owner or the master to pay the penalty? I can see that complications may arise. The owner may be abroad at the time of the sailing, and may allege that the whole blame rests on the master. Consequently, the master may have to pay the £100 for taking the ship to sea. I move -

That the words " on the master and owner respectively " be added.
