Mr FORBES (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the Minister for Labour and National Service seen the reported opposition of the Deputy Leader of the Opposition to the proposed ballot for national service training on the ground that such a ballot would be used unfairly against the sons of those in the lower income sections of the community? Does the Minister think the honorable gentleman is attempting to make partypolitical capital out of the defence preparations of this country? Will the Minister give an. assurance that such a system of balloting will be devised that not even the Deputy Leader of the Opposition will be able to question its integrity?
