Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) (1:35 AM) . - On that assurance of the Minister I do not propose to proceed with my amendment. The point I have in view is that the Air, Service is a new Service, and an officer may transfer, and, naturally, as the Force develops, get rapid promotion. He may lose his nerve, but he may become a colonel, or whatever the office may be termed, and re-transfer with his new rank. That I wish to guard against ; but, as the sister Forces are alive to the danger which is to be provided against by regulation, I am satisfied to let the amendment go.
