Senator BROWN (QUEENSLAND) - My question arises from an experience of not less than 12 months ago when a relative by marriage, who had previously been a member of the Army, attempted to re-enlist and was rejected, along with 12 others, because he failed the educational test. I should like to know from the Minister concerned - probably the Leader of the Government in the Senate - whether, if conscription becomes the law of the land, conscripts will be called upon to pass an educational test and, if they fail, will be educated to the proper standard.
