Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Minister for Labour and National Service) . - If I have understood the point made by the honorable member for Chisholm (Sir Wilfred Kent Hughes), the position is that those who have completed their 140 days of service, but who are still technically liable to be called up, may wish to transfer to some other service. There have been cases of servicemen transferring to the United Kingdom militia, I understand. They will be enabled to do that under this provision. I do not know whether that expresses the idea clearly, but that is the position as I understand it.
