Senator PEARCE (Western Australia Minister for Defence) . - Senator Drake-Brockman knows that every citizen officer is responsible for the equipment which he controls. If we allowed him to resign forthwith, we might not have time to geta report upon that equipment, and to ascertain that everything is all right with his command. I take it that the intention of the provision is to give time for inquiries to be made, so as to insure that everything is straight before he is permitted to resign.
