In. clause 3>3, sub-clause (2.), paragraph (a), after " shall ", insert ", if so required by an authorized officer,".

This is another small machinery amendment considered necessary, from a practical point of view, by my department. Clause 33 (2.) as it stands, would oblige every ship to stop, for the purposes of boarding, on entering port. In actual fact, not every ship has to be boarded. The amendment, if acceptable to honorable members, will have the effect that masters of ships need not bring their vessels to for boarding unless required to do so by an authorized officer.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 34 to 38 - by leave - taken together.
