Mr RYAN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for Post-warReconstruction inform the House whether steps will be taken? to ensure a more even rate of: demobilization than at present as between the various services-? I cite the example of five young men who were apprenticed to process engravers. Two of them joined the Army and now have four aud a half and three years service respectively. They are still serving, whilst: three others; who have had service of three years, three years and two years respectively in the Air Force; have been discharged. It seems unfair that some should serve longer than others because they belong to different arms of the services.
