Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Defence: When will he authorize the proclamation of the Courts-Martial Appeals Act, which was passed sixteen months ago? Does he still believe, as he said when he introduced it, that the act is an important step forward in the administration of military justice in Australia? If so, does he know or can he give any explanation for such a long delay in bringing the act into operation?
