Senator REID (Queensland) . - Honorable senators are indebted to the Minister (Senator Russell) for the information which he has given to the Committee in reply to questions raised during the debate yesterday. I am glad to know that the Service is now so well balanced that it is able to absorb all the young people, male and female, who are taken into it. It is only lately, however, that that has been so. One thing that has to be borne in mind is that the highwages earned by the young people outside the Service is an inducement to them to remain outside. For this reason there may not be such a rush as there used to be to get into the Service.
