Mr RIORDAN (KENNEDY, QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for the Army inform me whether it is true that boxers and jockeys are retained in military camps in the metropolitan areas, whilst the sons of workers are sent to battle stations? Do boxers and jockeys secure time off from their military duties for training purposes, although the average soldier is granted only short periods of leave? For example, troops who had served abroad for two years were granted eight days' leave on their return to Australia recently.
