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

That in sub-clause 2 the words" every foreigngoing ship " be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " (a) every foreign-going ship, or (b) Australian-trade ship on a voyage between consecutive ports of call which exceeds the prescribed distance."

The first part of the clause deals with ships carrying over 100 passengers, and the second with those carrying less than 100 passengers. The amendment is intended to require that in the case of the latter there shall be some person on board certified by a medical inspector as qualified to render first aid.
