Senator BROWN (Victoria) - Mr President, I gave notice this afternoon at about 3 o'clock to the secretary to the Attorney-General (Senator Greenwood) that I proposed to raise a matter in respect to Mr Paul Fox. I am delighted to inform the Senate that in the Melbourne Magistrate's Court today at 2 p.m. Mr Thompson, S.M., upheld the claim of Mr Paul Fox that he was a conscientious objector. This claim took 12 weeks to be determined. In the meantime Mr Paul Fox languished in gaol, I demand of the Attorney-General, as a matter of justice, that he use every means at his disposal to have Paul Fox released from gaol forthwith.
