Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) .- During the luncheon adjournment the Minister for Defence (Senator Pearce) submitted to me an amendment which he proposes to move in the clause under consideration, in lieu of that which I had intended to move. It appears to meet all my objections, but some honorable senators may desire to amend it so as to make provision for other cases. A sister and brother, who are orphans, may be very greatly attached to each other, and if the brother were killed in the war his sister would naturally be the person who would most treasure any decoration he had won.
