Senator McKENNA (Tasmania) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I am also interested in the proposed new section 35. It was this proposed new section that alerted my mind, on the first reading of it, to the possibility of conscription. I, too, thought that the proposed new section was outside the ambit of other proposed new sections. It was the Minister's comment in his second reading speech that made my mind turn to conscription. I rather satisfied myself that it is not implicit in that proposed new section. I took it to be some kind of expeditionary force. I asked the Minister whether he would care to comment on it, and he indicated that he might say something on the point at the Committee stage.
