Senator KEATING (TASMANIA) - Is the Minister of Defence aware that there is a prevalent disposition among the women of Australia to offer their services for the purpose of nursing wounded soldiers who return to Australia, and also is he aware that possibly the authorities responsible for the care of the wounded soldiers may not be disposed to view such offers with a very great degree of enthusiasm, but desire persons who have qualifications for nursing to undertake this work? If those circumstances are correct, will he take into consideration the advieableness of having some succinct statement made public as to how the services of those women volunteers may be utilized, and in what way they should be offered ?
