Senator CORMACK (Victoria) .- I apologise to the Committee. Proposed new section 50d, which clause 23 seeks to insert, provides -

Where any part of the Citizen Military Forces is employed on continuous full time military service, it shall, forthwith, after it ceases to be so employed, be returned to the locality of the Command or Military District to which it belongs.

I assume that the " Command or Military District to which it belongs " is the Command or Military District in which the unit was raised, if that is the meaning, I suggest the proposed new section should read - . . bc returned to the locality of the Command or Military District in which it was raised.

The normal practice in these matters is for the General Staff or the Military Board to move units hither, thither and yon. My suggestion, if adopted, would mean that a member of the C.M.F. would return to the area in which he lives, because that would be where his unit was raised.
