Senator PEARCE - The answer to the question is "No." This morning I had an opportunity to again look over the papers, and I found that my statement that the punishment was inflicted by a Court is not correct. A Court of inquiry was held, and it reported to the Commandant. It was the Administrator, Colonel Holmes, who inflicted the punishment. I intend to issue an instruction that it is not to be repeated.

Suggest corrections
