The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon J Cunningham - In conformity with the sessional order that unless otherwise ordered, the motion for adjournment shall be put, on Fridays, at 4 p.m., I formally put the question -

That the Senate do now adjourn.

Question resolved in the negative.

Debate resumed.

Senator SAMPSON - I hope that the Minister will place the views expressed by Senator Collett, myself and others before the Minister for the Army. To my mind, a court of inquiry should be held in the ordinary course of events. In my Army experience, whenever an officer's conduct has been questioned, or when material has been lost, a court of inquiry has been established for the purpose of clearing or convicting the man concerned.
