Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - I move, as a consequential amendment -

That the amendment be amended by leaving out the words " in the coasting trade."

These words are merely redundant.

Senator Millen - The Minister wants to send down to the other House a sample of accurate drafting. Might I suggest that the clause ought to read "as so engaged "? The clause now reads " so registered or engaged in the coasting trade." The Minister proposes to take out the words "in the coasting trade."

Senator PEARCE - I ask leave to withdraw my motion. After all, the words are a mere redundancy.

Senator Millen - I consent to that with great reluctance.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendment agreed to.
