Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Minister for Labour and National Service) . - There is no disagreement between honorable members who have spoken and the Government as to the result desired. I suggest that we follow the course indicated by the honorable member for Sturt and negative the clause.

Mr Ward - Have you made a mess of it?

Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - If I had I would at least be honest enough to admit it. That is something that I have not yet known the honorable member to do.

Mr Ward - Who did make a mess of it?

Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - Whether any one has is yet to be resolved. To avoid delaying the committee, I will adopt the suggestion of the honorable member for Sturt and undertake to have the draftsman and the Department of Defence confer upon it. If anything needs to be done, we will make suitable arrangements.
