Mr DRAKEFORD (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) (Minister for Air) - I am not aware that those who have offered for enlistment in the Air Force are being humbugged in any way. Many applications for enlistment, including that of the honorable member for Watson, have been made, and all these applicants have to wait their turn for call-up. Those who enlisted prior to the 31st December last have been placed on the reserved list, and those who have enlisted since that date are now serving in the Australian Military Forces. Whether that is a fair sample of the Air Board's administration is a matter of opinion. The question of whether the Air Board will be abolished in the same way as was the Military Board will receive the consideration of the Government.
