Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Customs and Excise) , - I suggest that Senator Cohen take Senator Kendall's word that coastwise is a well known nautical term. Division No. 820, sub-division 5, item 03 - Coastwise mail services - shows an increase in the estimates of £4,249. The expenditure under this item comprises payments to shipping companies for the conveyance of mail by sea between various Australian ports. That is what makes it coastwise. The increase is due to the cost of conveying mail to and from Tasmania by the "Princess of Tasmania" and the "Bass Trader".
