Senator McLEAY asked the Minister representing the Prime Minister, upon notice -

In view of the Government's recent decision to place Militia troops, Royal Australian Air Force personnel, &c, on the same footing as the Australian Imperial Force, and having in mind the probable Allied offensive against the Japanese, will the Government now give consideration to the introduction of an amendment to the National Security Act to remove the restriction preventing the use of Militia troops outside Australian territory, bo that the conscripted troops of other Allied nations will have the full support not only of the Australian Imperial Force but also the Australian Militia?
