Mr HANSEN (WIDE BAY, QUEENSLAND) - I refer the Minister for the Army to his answer to my question No. 632 on the notice paper in which he indicated that in 1966-67 the Australian Regular Army accepted only 2,911 males of 11,484 volunteers and only 362 females of 1,688 volunteers. Will the Minister consult with his colleague, the Minister for Health, who has a dual capacity in representing the Minister for Education and Science in this chamber, to ascertain what steps should be taken to uplift the health and educational standards of the average Australian youth and whether increased assistance to the National Fitness Council and educational authorities could alleviate the position?
