Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - There is a great deal of difference between the over-carrying of cargo referred to by Senator Vardon and the circumstances. I had in view. I was taking the case of a ship leaving America with the bulk of her cargo for Adelaide, but having on board 100 tons for Sydney. Under this provision the 100 tons of cargo for Sydney could not be shipped from Adelaide except under our coastal conditions, unless it was shipped in another foreigngoing vessel, which, for instance, might be despatched from London for Sydney via Adelaide. I am speaking, if the terms be not contradictory, of a through bill of lading with transhipment at Adelaide. I assume that under the amendment one foreign-going vessel will be able to tranship into another foreign-going vessel.

Senator Pearce - That is so.

Motion agreed to.
