Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) .- This clause, which looks rather an involved one, is not so in fact. It provides for the insertion of certain words in various places, and is intended to permit of the regulations giving confirming officers power to deal with any findings or sentences of courts martial found after confirmation as being completed to be invalid. The new paragraph gb permits the regulations to govern the nature of the restraint, discipline, and training of trainees under sentences of detention awarded by a civil Court. The word " command " is intended to allow the regulations to provide for affiliated units of Senior Cadets being under the command of the Citizen Force Divisional and Unit Commanders. They are really technical amendments.
