Dr PRICE (BOOTHBY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Will the Minister for Munitions say whether Sydney and Adelaide newspapers correctly reported him as having stated recently iti Adelaide that during the last war the Australian Imperial Force pronounced against conscription? Has the Minister observed that, according to official documents, the Australian Imperial Force pronounced in favour of conscription by a majority of approximately 13,000 votes in the referendum of 1916, and approximately 10,000 votes in the referendum of 1917? Will the Minister examine those official records for the purpose of making an appropriate correction, with the same amount of publicity as that which was given to the original statement?
