Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - The explanation is that Major Wynne submitted to the War Office a roll of. the strength of the cadets, and then when the medals were to be pre sented he submitted another roll which contained an additional name. The War Office sent out the two rolls to the Department of Defence, and asked which was the correct one. The rolls were forwarded to Major Wynne, and he admitted that there was one name on the second roll which ought not to have appeared. He withdrew the name, and we have sent the documents back to the War Office with that explanation.

Senator Millen - They put off the presentation of the other medals because there was a surplus name on the roll ?

Senator PEARCE - That is the explanation of why the medals have not been given.
