Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - I direct attention to the proviso attached to the proposed new section. I want to know whether, under that proviso, even if a magistrate refuses to issue a warrant, the Defence Department will still imprison the. trainee?

Senator Pearce - We do not imprison trainees.

Senator GARDINER - Well, will still detain him. I have heard some serious complaints about the detention of. cadets. Some have complained that they have actually been knocked about by officers who, having got them under them, have " put the boot in." I want some explanation of the proviso to which I have directed attention.
