Senator MILLEN (TASMANIA) . - I can quite conceive "of a man coming out from Home who has had a special training such as that possessed by some officers who had gone through a course of fort engineering. The Military Board, after very serious consideration, might desire to have such a man here for the purpose of imparting instruction. Surely we must make provision for cases of that kind. We might have a man who has had a specific training in a special branch of military science, and whom we- wished to push forward for the- benefit of our' own Forces. Surely we must make- some' provision by which we may be able to utilize his services for the benefit of Australia ?

Senator Elliott -. - Should not the same provision apply to an Australian officer who possesses similar scientific attainments.?

Senator -J. D. MILLEN. - Yes.

Senator Elliott - The Bill makes no provision' for that.
