Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - Is the Minister for the Navy aware that many young doctors are wasting their time at different naval bases around Australia with little or nothing to do? Is he aware that many of them are becoming discontented and bitter, not only because of their enforced idleness, but also because they are losing contact with their profession and know that they are urgently needed in civilian life? Will the Minister treat this matter as urgent with a view to releasing many of them in order that they may return to a useful professional life and not remain a burden on the taxpayer?
