Mr DEVINE (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does the Acting Prime Minister condone the treatment of conscientious objectors who have been handed over to military authorities whereby they are being subjected to having to sleep on a concrete floor, being fed on bread and water and being awakened every half hour for identification purposes? In view of the recent serious admissions of maltreatment of an Australian citizen and other allegations that have been made over recent years, will the Acting Prime Minister instigate an open inquiry into all aspects of military detention and treatment at military establishments? Finally, pending such an inquiry, will the Acting Prime Minister call for the resignation of the Minister for the Army?
