Senator DOBSON asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

1.   Is it the intention of the Minister to transfer the Victorian Senior Cadet Battalion to the Military Forces of the Commonwealth; and, if not,

2.   Will the Minister alter the Cadet Regulations so as to permit youths over nineteen years of age to serve in such Battalion and enable officers, other than school teachers, to obtain employment as officers in the said Battalion?

3.   Does the Minister intend to alter the regulation applying to both junior and senior cadets which limits applicants for permanent employment in cadet corps to "teachers"?
