Mr MASSY-GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is it a fact that in the new Navigation Bill to be submitted to this Chamber the Minister proposes to make provision for compelling wireless apparatus 'to be fitted upon vessels very much smaller than the Endeavour?

Mr TUDOR - I cannot carry the provisions of the proposed Navigation Act in my mind, but I do not think so. I think there is a limit to the number of passengers a vessel may carry without the wireless installation being fitted, but I do not think there is any reference to tonnage. The Endeavour really carried only one passenger. I agree, of course, with the honorable member that, as far as possible, every vessel should be fitted with wireless apparatus.
