Mr STEWART (Lang) .- I should like the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) to tell me why the following words are included in proposed new section 37: -

.   . notwithstanding that he does not possess the prescribed educational qualification.

Surely if a man has been to a university and has obtained a diploma he must have the prescribed educational qualification. The addition of the words to which I have referred suggests that a person not possessing the prescribed educational qualification might be appointed to a position requiring special qualifications. I am not referring to professional or technical qualifications in this instance, but to special qualifications. T accept the Prime Minister's explanation except in relation to the last few words of the proposed new section.
