Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - I trust that the Minister will not accept the amendment, because due notice of the intended enactment of this provision has already been given. This clause, with very slight alterations, has appeared in every Navigation Bill which has Been brought before the Senate, and every ship-owner who contemplated buildinga ship has known exactly the intention of the Government regarding the accommodation to be provided. If does not take very long nowadays to build a ships and undoubtedly all ship-owners have had full notice of our intended requifemerits. I know that some men who Went Home to supervise the buildingof some steam-ships whichare running to-day were instructed to comply with the provisions contained in the Navigation Bill of 1904. I think that the Committee will be well advised in adhering to the clause.
