Senator MURPHY -I have the report on the matter which was raised by Senator Greenwood. It states that the Governor-General has now remitted all fines unpaid as at 2 December 1972 imposed under the National Service Act or for convictions under the Crimes Act for offences committed in the course of opposition to the national service scheme. In accordance with this decision, where persons have paid such fines or part of such fines after that date refunds have been made or will be made. There are 5 cases in which refunds have been made and another one in which it has not been possible to find the person concerned. That is in the case of moneys paid subsequent to 2 December. When I say that it is repaid for opposition to the national service scheme and matters under the Crimes Act, that does not include matters in which there was something in the nature of violence committed in the course of opposition to the National Service Act.
