Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - As yet the exact date of the next call-up for national service has not been determined. But I think it can be taken as fairly precise that the date for registration will be during the last week or second last week of January. As soon as I have the actual date I shall announce it in the House or, if the House is not sitting, independently. As to the second question, those who will have to register will be the young men whose 20th birthday will occur in the first six months of next year, lt is not necessary for them to notify the Commonwealth Employment Service of temporary changes of address, particularly if they are going away on holidays. AH that is necessary is that the permanent address be notified. Under the regulations, young men who go away on holidays are under an obligation to ensure that letters with a national service notification can be posted directly to them.
