Mr DALY (MARTIN, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I havereceived complaints from constituents of mine who are members of the Armed Forces and have been directed to serve in a special investigation, bureau which, I understand, is a section of the Provost Corps. One of my constituents, who has a fairly clean record, has been called upon to pay fines totalling £18 for having deliberately absented himself without leave on two occasions because, on the strongest personal grounds, he objects to serving in this unit. In view of the fact that some men, on conscientious grounds, do not desire to undertake the kind of work involved, will the Minister for the Army give instructions that personnel for this unit must be obtained by selecting volunteers?
