Mr THOMPSON (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - With reference to the authority given to officers commanding local Militia units to grant exempt tions to harvest hands and other rural employees from attendance at Militia training camps, will the Minister for the Army state whether he has received a report on the operation of that method of granting exemptions? Will he also say whether he has been made aware of the fact that great dissatisfaction is felt in many wheat-growing districts at the large number of refusals by officers to grant exemptions?
