Senator PEARCE - Our General Officer Commanding has the same power as that referred to by Mr. Asquith, and no doubt will exercise it, to promote to commissioned rank non-commissioned officers or even privates for service in the field ; but the honorable senator's request that temporary promotions shall take place, for instructional purposes, not for services in the field, but for those remaining here, is quite a different matter. The question has been under consideration for some time, and I have to-day approved of a number -of senior non-commissioned officers being appointed temporarily to fill commissioned ranks.


Senator Guthrie - - Does that apply to the Navy, too!


Senator PEARCE - No.
