Senator PALTRIDGE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - I had, in fact, considered clause 47 (2.) prior to the reference made by Senator Wright. Despite his persuasive argument, I hold the view that the distinction does exist. Clause 47 (2.) refers to things which may be done. Clause 5 (1 .) refers to classes of persons who are to be approved. I hold the view, and hold it firmly, that in respect of the prescription of classes of persons, it is for the Government to take the decision and that it should not be done by regulation.
