Senator STEWART (QUEENSLAND) askedthe Minister representing the Minister of Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Is it the case that by a recent amendment of the British Merchant Shipping Act of 1894 the load-line has been raised, and that the lives of seamen and passengers have thereby been endangered?

2.   If so, will the Minister propose an amendment of the Commonwealth Navigation Act which will restore the load-line to its position before the amendment referred to was passed ?
