Mr SPENDER (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister .for the Army a question about soldiers who have qualified on points for discharge, but who are being held as key men. Can the Minister say who has authority to retain them once they have qualified for discharge under the points system ? It is alleged that many men who should be discharged, having the requisite number of points, are retained in the Army doing absolutely nothing, thus being prevented from rehabilitating themselves in, civil life.
