Senator LAUCKE (South Australia) - I have listened closely to the Minister. Perhaps we can achieve in another way what we seek to achieve by changing the word 'shall' to may' in proposed new section 13c, and by inserting the words 'if the court so orders' in proposed new section 13d (1). I have a suggestion that may be acceptable to the Minister. We could provide that where an offence is alleged to have been committed the ship may be seized until such time as the court has determined whether an offence has been committed. I believe that such a provision would have the same effect as the amendments I have moved. I should like that suggestion considered.
