Senator PEARCE (Western AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - This is a comparatively unimportant provision. Part 4 of the principal Act deals with liability in time of war. Part 12 deals with universal training. Under section 35, voluntary enlistment applies only to part 4. We want it to apply as well to part 12. It may be necessary to apply voluntary enlistment, not only to the Light House, but to the

Artillery ; and that is the effect of the amendment. It extends our power to continue the system of voluntary enlistment. I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

Motion agreed to.
