Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Yes, 1 have been misrepresented by the Minister for Labour and National Service. In answering my question concerning the lawful right of a person to join the Citizen Military Forces as an alternative to national service training and whether there was any Act of Parliament which gave a member of the CMF immunity from service in Vietnam the Minister chose to ignore both parts of the question and instead misrepresented the question by stating that he was pleased to note-


Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member will confine himself to the Minister's remarks in which he claims he has been personally misrepresented. He cannot debate the matter or refer to what the Minister said in relation to the various Acts.


Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - The Minister said he was pleased to note that 1 had in my question admitted that there was a lawful alternative to national service training and that was by joining the CMF. My question did not give that impression, nor did it make that admission. My question was this: . . . which Act or Regulation gives a person liable to register for national service the right to join the Citizen Military Forces as a lawful alternative to national service? ] asked which Act gave a person the right to join the CMF as a lawful alternative. I did not say, as the Minister attributed to mc, that it was a lawful alternative to doing national service training. The Minister has still nol answered the question.
