Mr DRAKEFORD - by leave- Inreply to a question on the 6th August by the honorable member for Balaclava (Mr. White) I am now able to say that approximately 10,000 serving members of the Royal Australian Air Force have volunteered to continue their service in the Interim Force. Additionally 1,889 ex-members of the. Air Force have volunteered for re-enlistment in the Air Force for Interim Force purposes. Many of them have already been enlisted and action is well in hand for the examina- tion of the remainder. The receipt of an average of 300 applications per week from ex-members is regarded as quite satisfactory.

Mr White - What is the proportion of ground staff?

Mr DRAKEFORD - I have no dissection .of the figures, but perhaps I shall be able to obtain them for the honorable member.
