Senator PALTRIDGE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - 1 do not think there is any difference in substance. I notice that the proposed new section is a paraphrase of the old section, which has been in existence since 1903 and in which the phrase " to which it belongs " has been used. I do not know whether there is any real objection to the retention of the words. All I can say is that as the honorable senator has raised the point, and as the legislation is now undergoing examination, as I think he is aware, I will discuss his proposal with the draftsman.
