Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - It is not often that mistakes occur in the printing of a Bill. On this occasion, however, a rathercurious error has crept in. In the schedule of amendments which I circulated among honorable senators,' there was one embracing a proviso to this clause, as follows : -

Provided that a commanding officer shall not pass a sentence of imprisonment on any person.

That proviso was adopted; hut there should have been additional words included. I move, therefore -

That the following words be added at the end of the proviso: - " and shall not award detention to a member of the Citizen Air Force for an offence committed when not on active service, and that when sot on active service a member of the Citizen Air Force shall. not be required to undergo confinement to barracks, except when attending continuous training."

Amendment Agreed to.

Clause, as further amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with further amendments; reports adopted.

Bill read a third time.
