Senator ELLIOTT (Victoria) (2:16 AM) . - I move -

Thatthe words " manner prescribed, of the cause " be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words, "writing of any complaintor charge made and of any action proposed to be taken against him."

If we pass this amendment, we ourselves prescribe the procedure. I take this wording from the corresponding section of the Defence Act. I am not at all clear why in this case the draftsman has departed from it. I want to bring this clause into exact accord with the corresponding section of the Defence Act.

Senator Pearce - I have no objection to the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
