Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) .- At first sight this may appear to mean an extension of one year in the period of training. As a matter of fact, it is not, as a proviso in section 125of the Act reads -

Provided that, except in time of imminent danger of war, service under paragraph (d) shall he limited to one registration or one muster parade.

We have altered that to read "Provided that unless the Governor-General otherwise directs." We have altered the word " service " to the word " training," but action can only be taken under proclamation by the Governor-General. There are eight years in which training, subject to that proviso, may be imposed. There is no actual increase in the years of training.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 62 (Duration of training).
