Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

This clause is redundant, as, if a vessel's certificate has expired, she will not be permitted to leave. See clauses 200 and 415 as amended. The clause is also faulty in that it only refers to vessels which " return" to Australia, that is to say, vessels that have been here before. It would not cover vessels arriving here for the first time. For these reasons it is best to omit the clause altogether.

Motion agreed to.

Clause 210 -

(1)   All steam-ships registered in Australia or engaged in the coasting trade shall, if required by the regulations, be divided by transverse watertight partitions in the prescribed- manner, and have watertight false bottoms....

House of Representatives' Amendments.- Omit "transverse"; after "bottoms" insert "as prescribed."
