Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I do not like to pass a clause dealing with courts martial, without knowing exactly what I am doing. It seems that the amendment is merely consequential, and does not deal with any principle in connexion with courts martial, because it merely provides- for the insertion of the words "and the powers exercisable in relation to those findings and sentences."

Senator Pearce - It is merely a drafting amendment.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 39 agreed to.

Clause 40 (Punishment for contempt of court) .
