Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I wish to ask the Prime Minister a question. In what year did the Labour Government introduce conscription during World V/ar II and was there a referendum before its introduction? Was the present Leader of the Opposition a Minister in that Government? Did he oppose conscription and, if so, did he later resign, or did he scrap his principles? Was the minimum age for the call up 18 years and did the Government send half trained conscripts into jungle fighting in New Guinea?
