Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister for the Army aware that, according to the answer given to my question concerning volunteers for the Army, since I960, 57,409 men have volunteered for service and 41,593 or 73 per cent, have been rejected or have withdrawn their applications? Furthermore, 73 per cent, have been rejected in this present year. Will the Minister now state the reasons for the high percentage of rejection? Why has the Government introduced conscription, with overseas service, when so many men are prepared to volunteer?
