DEFENCE FORCES WHETHER COMMONWEALTH HAS POWER TO PREVENT MEMBERS OF CITIZEN DEFENCE FORCE FROM ACTING AS SPECIAL CONSTABLES OF STATE
The Minister for Defence asks to be advised on a question raised by Mr McDougall, M.P. as to whether the Department of Defence has power to prevent members of the Citizen Defence Force from acting as special constables of a State.
In my opinion the Defence Department has no such power.
