Senator McKENNA (Tasmania) (Leader of the Opposition) . - Clause 12 repeals sections 19 and 20 of the Act and inserts a new provision. The repealed sections deal with the seniority of officers in the active military forces and provide that their seniority should be determined upon the basis of the dates of their respective appointments. Under proposed new section 19, which is sought to be inserted by clause 12, seniority will be determined by regulation. Can the Minister say whether the principle of seniority based upon the date of appointment will be preserved in the regulations that are contemplated?
