Senator GRANT (NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

How many persons have enlisted in each of the six States of the Commonwealth -

(a)   Between 18 and 19 years of age?

(b)   Between 19 and 20 years of age?

(c)   Between 20 and 21 years of age?

Senator PEARCE - I have to inform the honorable senator that the compilation of this information would take some months, and necessitate the appointment of a special staff of clerks to go through the papers. In addition to that, the papers are the subject of daily reference in regard to casualty lists, separation allowances, and allotment allowances. I suggest to the honorable senator, therefore, that he should not press the request.

Senator Grant - Very well.
