Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I move-

That sub-clause (2) be left out.

This provision was inserted to assist the young men of seventeen or eighteen years of age who, when acting as telegraph messengers, enlisted for active service, and, as it was thought that they would be unable to study when abroad, it was decided' that. when, they returned they should be) appointed to the permanent staff without examination. I am glad to say that all of those youths who went away have returned,, and, as they axe now permanent members of the Service, this provision is unnecessary.

Amendment agreed to.
