Senator MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Defence) - The answer is - 1 and 2. It is in very rare cases that transfers of married men with large families from one State to another are approved, and then only in cases where it is clearly shown that the transfer is in the interests of the Public Service.

I understand that all cases of proposed transfers are carefully scrutinized before approval is given, but I will issue further instructions in the matter.

Suggest corrections
