Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am concerned about the statement published in the Canberra Times that ACI Jones, who had been kept in detention for 111 days awaiting court-martial, and was sentenced to detention for 28 days, has been kept in the Royal Australian Air Force for the last two months although his sentence was suspended as the result of an . official inquiry. On the 10th July the Minister for Air advised me, in answer to a question, that the discharge of ACI Jones had been arranged. I now ask the Minister whether the discharge of this man has been effected? If not, can the honorable gentleman explain the failure to effect it?
