Mr NICHOLLS (BONYTHON, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I preface my question to the Minister for Immigration by saying that recently several United Kingdom migrants within my electorate complained that they had not been informed, prior to leaving the United Kingdom, of the requirements of the National Service Act. If this is correct will the Minister inform his overseas officers that intending migrants should be made aware of this particular legislation? If it is not correct, will he inform the House of the date his officers overseas were instructed to tell migrants that their sons could be conscripted and that this could eventually lead to their service overseas in the bloody jungles of Vietnam?

Suggest corrections
