Mr BARNARD (BASS, TASMANIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Defence. Is the 3rd Battalion, stationed at Woodside, South Australia, the next battalion to be posted to Vietnam? ls Lieutenant-Colonel F. P. Scott the Commanding Officer of the 3rd Battalion? Did Lieutenant-Colonel Scott recently ask all members of the battalion, and national servicemen in particular, whether they were willing to serve in Vietnam? Did between 60 and 80 of the men indicate unwillingness to serve in Vietnam? Have these men been transferred to noncombatant roles in the unit and will not now be going to Vietnam?
