Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - There is just one provision in section 124 of the Principal Act upon which I desire an explanation. I refer to paragraph ra, which reads -

The regulation and control of aerial navigation.

I feel that this Committee is not prepared to hand over to the Military authorities the regulation and control of aerial navigation. "Under this Bill the GovernorGeneral in Council will have power to issue regulations controlling aerial navigation, whilst under our Defence Act he will be empowered to issue regulations relating to an Air Force. Is it the intention of the Government that two sets of regulations shall be framed, one under each of these measures, and that these regulations shall apply only to military purposes, or will the wideness which is implied in the paragraph which I have quoted, empower the authorities to make regulations governing aerial navigation?
