Mr TUDOR (Yarra) - I trust that the Prime Minister will accept the amendment proposed. Cases have been brought under my own notice, in which watchmen who are employed in the Customs Department have been compelled to work every night throughout the year. The ex-Prime Minister promised that that practice should be discontinued as far as possible.

Mr Deakin - I think that it has been.

Mr TUDOR - I know of watchmen who are engaged in the Customs Department, and who have to work upon seven days in the week continuously.

Mr Kingston - But they receive an allowance for it in the wages which are paid to them.

Mr TUDOR - They do not. I trust that the Government will agree to the amendment.
