Mr POYNTON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Some time ago I directed the attention of the Acting Minister for Defence to a new regulation which had been issued in South Australia, and which reduced the pay of certain men in the force. I was then informed by the Minister that no such regulation had been issued, but he promised to obtain a report on the matter. I have since been informed by quite a number of people that such a regulation has been issued, and that it affects to the extent of 15s. or 25s. the present pay of £5. I wish to know whether the Minister has received a report, and if not whether he will obtain one in order to ascertain where lies the truth.
