Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Minister for Air) - My understanding of the situation does not conform with that of Senator Cavanagh. When I entered the Senate this morning J had a brief on this matter. My understanding is that the lad in question did faint and he did cut his chin. But the medical orderlies were not on the scene quickly enough and the Lieutenant-Colonel used the words which he used not to the recruit who had fainted but the medical orderlies. In view of what the honourable senator has quoted, I will make a further investigation and let him know the results of that investigation.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
