Mr SPEAKER - The honorable gentleman must be brief.

Mr POLLARD - Is the Minister aware that an application for release from the Army will be made by a man who considers that he could serve his country better as a primary producer? This man's father owns two farms, which are 18 miles apart. The father is 52 years of age, and is in ill health. One farm has an area of 1,000 acres, and carries 800 ewes to lamb down and 80 Border-Leicester stud sheep. The other farm has 400 ewes to lamb down, 200 dry sheep, 30 stud Shropshire sheep, a Red Poll cattle herd-

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honorable member is entitled to explain his question shortly, but he is not entitled to make a statement.

Mr POLLARD - I have said enough to indicate the facts of the case to the Minister. Will the honorable gentleman endeavour to arrange machinery whereby decisions may be given promptly on such applications and with satisfaction to all concerned ?
