Mr REYNOLDS (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for the Army. What are the most recently available net recruitment figures for the Australian Regular Army? Do these figures show any substantial improvement in the recruitment rate? If not, does the Government propose any new measures to improve the rate, or has the Government resigned itself to relying on conscripted 20-year olds to provide an increasingly large proportion of the servicemen required to meet our greatly increased commitments in what the Government expects to be a long, protracted struggle in Vietnam?
