Mr SINCLAIR —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House condemns the hypocrisy of the Prime Minister who-

(1) sought through a national advertising campaign to encourage participation in the Citizen Military Forces;

(2) subsequently assured the Army Reserve of the Government's support for these forces, and

(3) has now decided in the most cynical manner to reduce the numbers of reservists by 1,572 over the next 12 months and to tax the small emoluments received by the members of these forces.
