Mr FROST (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) (Minister for Repatriation) - If the honorable gentleman will let me have all the particulars, I shall obtain a reply for him.

Mr ADERMANN - On Friday last the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction, during the debate on the release of enemy aliens from the services to take up university courses, said that 911 members of the Services had been released for this purpose. Yesterday, I myself heard the Minister for Supply and Shipping say in the Senate that the number was 837. Can the Minister for Post-war Reconstruction say which figure is correct ?

Mr DEDMAN - The first estimate, which was obtained in a hurry in order to answer a question, was that there had been837 releases. When the figures were checked, it, was found that the number was 911.
