Senator BAKHAP (Tasmania) . - Is the Minister of Defence satisfied with this penalty? It seems ridiculous, when it is contrasted with some of the offences which are enumerated in the Bill.

Senator Pearce - We think it is quite sufficient. It applies only to offences under this Bill, and those offences are not so important as are the offences which are dealt with by the Crimes Bill.

Senator BAKHAP - There is the offence of communicating with the enemy. If a person does that, he is a traitor, and should be subject to a very drastic penalty.
