Senator CHATAWAY (QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

1.   In the case of the cadet named Clark, at Albury, was it under the instructions of the Defence Department that the prosecution was made under the Victorian Police Offences Act instead of under the Commonwealth Defence Act and Regulations?

2.   If so, why?

3.   If not, is it the intention of the Govern ment to utilize Commonwealth laws to enforce its own laws rather than those of the States?
