Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - Senator Millen will find, upon examination, that the amendment to which he has referred is not a highly contentious one. Perhaps it would be more satisfactory if I were to explain it now, because all the other amendments relate to the prosecution of cadets.

Senator Sir Josiah Symon - It would be better to make the explanation in Committee.

Senator PEARCE - I would prefer to make it there. If the Leader of the Opposition will not oppose this motion, I will defer my explanation till the Bill is in Committee.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

In Committee(Consideration of House of Representatives' amendments) :
