Mr ENGLAND (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Minister for the Army. Will he consider making a statement relating to the Citizen Military Forces of the Commonwealth? Will he clearly define their role in time of need, the Government's latest target strength and the effective strength at present? Will he include in the statement information on whether there are any restrictions on enlistment that are based on occupational grounds and, if not, on how effective strength can be arrived at when it is certain that should major hostilities break out the whole of the country's manpower, male and female, will need to be marshalled?
