The CHAIRMAN - The honorable senator in these remarks is travelling somewhat wide of the question. The amend-, ment is simply to omit words relating to the recommendation of the GovernorGeneral in Council.

Senator ST LEDGER - I wish to resist any weakening of the original measure. I recognise how important a body the Military College will be, and what a great part it will play in the training of the Citizen Forces. If we cannot have the Bill as it left the Senate, I shall do all I can to prevent any unnecessary weakening of it. I consider that to provide opportunities for old men to get into the College would be to weaken it. Another point is, that if the College is to be affected by political influence it will be weakened dangerously.
