Mr MARTIN —My question is again to the Minister for Defence. Minister, in the light of your last answer and given that the defence reserves are being called upon in increasing numbers, will you directly approach the Minister for Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business requesting immediate changes to the Workplace Relations Act to allow defence reserve leave to be reintroduced as an allowable matter in employment awards?

Mr MOORE (Defence) —The government, needless to say, is looking at the question of the reserves and as to what might be the best way to approach it. The matter raised by the member for Cunningham is one of those that will be considered.
