Mr STREET (Minister for DefenceCorangamite) . - In conformity with the undertaking given to the honorable member for East Sydney (Mr. Ward) I move that the following new clause be inserted : - 11a. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize any service court of the United Kingdom or of a dominion to impose on a member of a visiting force in respect of any offence any penalty exceeding the penalty to which a member of the defence force would under the law of the Commonwealth be liable for a similar offence.

I am advised that this clause meets the objections raised by the honorable member for East Sydney and the honorable member for Batman (Mr. Brennan).

Mr Ward - Why strike out " or service authority " ?

Mr STREET - I am informed that the words are redundant.

Proposed new clause agreed to.

Title agreed to.
