Senator McKENNA (Tasmania) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I should like to ask the Minister whether I was correct when 1 stated what I believed to be right, namely, that those who are at present in the Regular Army Special Reserve will in future become members of the Supplement?

Senator PALTRIDGE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - That is right.

Senator McKENNA - Could the Minister indicate whether I am correct in my belief that in what is now the Regular Army Special Reserve, but what later will become the Regular Army Supplement, there arc some 4,000 to 5,000 people? I understand that of those, about half would represent men enlisted for full time service with the operational army - men enlisted for the short term three-year period who are quite physically fit.
