Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) .- I shall have the point raised by the honorable senator. looked into. Proposed new section84b, relating to untrue statements in applications for the payment of any money or allowance, has been found necessary during our war experience for the safeguarding of public moneys. We have had one or two unfortunate experiences where we' found that we had not sufficient power. The law authorities have drafted this provision to give us the power required.

SenatorFOSTER (Tasmania) [5.21]. - Proposed new section 84c Refers to the supply of liquor to persons undergoing training in pursuance of Part XII. of the Act. Do compulsory trainees go at any time for artillery training to Queenscliff? If so., while they were on duty down there, would this proposed: new section prevent any member of the permanent forces stationed at Queenscliff from getting a drink in Queenscliff?
