Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - The effect of this amendment of the law will be that the record-book will be a protection to the cadet. At the present time the area officer keeps records in which the attendances of each cadet are entered up to the end of each year. The intention here is that when a parade is held a roll will be kept, and the cadet may have entered up into his recordbook an account of the drills attended by him. This will be some protection to him against negligence in the entering up of the records, and will also be an evidence to his employer or parent that he went to the drill. The clause also provides for a company roll, which the cadet will be able to see at any time to insure thathis drills have been entered up.
