Mr CURTIN (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question without notice is directed to the Minister for the Army. Do the Australian Regular Army and the Regular Army Special Reserve personnel both receive equal compensation when retrenchments are carried out under the plan for the reorganization of the Army? Do the same rules and regulations apply to both sections during the rehabilitation period of the members retrenched? Is the Minister aware that much discontent prevails among R.A.S.R. personnel, especially the older members, over the methods being used by the Department of the Army? Will the Minister have a statemet prepared clarifying the situation and informing all ranks how the regulations will apply?
