Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) .- I am not quite clear as to the meaning of paragraph (b). I should like to know whether "professional" qualification means a "military" qualification. If so, I intend to move to insert after the word "professional" the words "other than military." I have very great objection t o power being given to promote, as prescribed by regulations, whatever they may be, any officer who is said to possess professional qualifications, if by that is meant military qualifications, because officers may come from abroad and receive appointments to high rank in our Forces over the heads of our own men.
