Senator O'BYRNE (TASMANIA) - I direct a question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. In view of the high ratio of young Australian men being found to be medically unfit in the current examinations for the call-up of national service trainees for military service, will the Minister take steps to have the Minister for Health authorised to have access to the medical classifications of all of the 20 year old youths examined, with a view to ascertaining the cause of failure to pass the medical fitness test, so that those who are rejected will be advised of the reason for their failure and encouraged to take the steps necessary to rectify as far as possible their physical defects?
