The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon T Givens (QUEENSLAND) - The honorable senator appears to be indulging in a criticism of the administration of the Defence Department, rather than in a discussion of the main principles of the Bill.


Senator ELLIOTT - We are now considering certain amendments of our Defence Act, and if that measure requires to be amended in directions other than those set out in the Bill, surely I am in order in calling attention to the fact.

Several Honorable Senators - Quite right.


Senator Gardiner - But the President says it is quite wrong.
