Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . -This also is really in the nature of a drafting amendment. The abolition of the appointment of district commandants and the substitution of the appointment of divisional commanders renders the repeal of section 66 and the inclusion of a new section imperative. At the same time, opportunity hasbeen taken to secure better drafting. It has been hitherto necessary for military officers, when travelling in the course of their duty, to be in uniform. That requirement is no longer insisted upon. Clause agreed to.

Clause 22 (Supplying inferior provisions, or equipment).
