Senator MILLEN - It is hardly possible for me to say what I have to say upon the subject in answer to a question. If the honorable senator will bring the matter up again when I move the motion for adjournment it will give me an opportunity of explaining more fully than I can do now exactly how it stands.

Senator RAE - I would press the Minister for a reply to the substantial part of my question. Is he prepared to re lease the lad, or order his release, from solitary confinement, and prevent that barbarous punishment being again inflicted upon offenders?

Senator MILLEN - Certainly not, upon the information that I now have to hand.

Senator Rae - We will upset your military system if you do not. The practice is barbarous, atrocious, and scoundrelly.

Senator MILLEN - Senator Rao helped to pass the law.

Senator Rae - I did not.
