Senator DRURY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice:

Are young men, who become eligible for national service registration while serving a gaol sentence, exempt from tbe requirement to register; if so, are they required to register on release from gaol.

Senator WRIGHT The Minister for Labour and National Service has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

Men in gaol are liable to register for national service in the same way as other men in their age group when required to do so. I also refer the honourable senator to my reply to Question No. 1344 in which I detailed the steps taken to ensure that all necessary information and the means to effect registration are available to the responsible prison authorities throughout Australia and that the requirement to register is brought to the attention of men in gaol who may be required to register within a particular registration period.
