Senator CHATAWAY (QUEENSLAND) - I desire to know whether the Minister of Defence is in a position to answer the following questions, which I asked on the 19th October : -

1.   In the case of the cadet named Clark, at Albury, was it under the instructions of the Defence Department that the prosecution was made under the Victorian Police Offences Act instead of under the Commonwealth Defence Act and Regulations?

2.   If so, why?

3.   If not, is it the intention of the Government to utilize Commonwealth laws to enforce its own laws, rather than those of the States?

Suggest corrections
