Mr DRAKEFORD (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) (Minister for Air) - The Air Board has not made a decision on that matter recently. However, a decision was made some time ago reducing the rates of pay for minors from 18 to 21 years of age in the Women's Australian Auxiliary Air Force. Various bodies in the different States have made representations to me on this matter, and I have given consideration to them. I am now considering the fixation of a minimum rate which will prevent hardship from being caused to any minor in the Women's Australian Auxiliary Air Force. I expect to reach a decision on the matter in the near future.
