Senator PEARCE - The Minister for Defence has supplied the following reply:

The Defence Act prescribes that, in the case of Naval trainees, the training shall be 25 whole-day drills in each year, of which not less than seventeen shall be cotinuous training. The continuous training is carried out afloat whenever possible, and the remaining eight days are made up by half-day and night drills. When H.M.A. training ship visits a naval sub-district for continuous training, the half-day and night drills listed during such period are necessarily deferred to a future date; but the total drills required by the act are not exceeded.
