Senator FRASER (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for External Territories) . - I have noted the remarks of Senator Gibson with regard to Werribee beef, and I shall discuss the matter with t he Minister for Commerce (Mr. Scully).

Senator Aylettwill agree that it would be impossible to make a hard and fast rule in connexion with the calling up of men for military service. When the last call-up was made the men concerned received only two or three days' notice. The only people who are competent to judge whether or not a longer period is possible are the responsible officers of the department. In some instances as long as three months elapsed between the time when the men were advised that they were liable to be called up and the date of their going into camp. I have noted the honorable senator's remarks, and will see what can be done in connexion with his request.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
