Mr KATTER (Kennedy) - Before commencing my remarks on the legislation before us, I would like to associate myself with the remarks of the honourable member for Grayndler (Mr Daly) in congratulating the honourable member for Wilmot (Mr Duthie) on his 25 years of service to this House. If my 5 years' experience with him is any indication I can well understand why he is one of the most respected men in the Opposition. I feel it is necessary - this interests you particularly, Mr Deputy Speaker - to refer to some comment which was made by the honourable member for Capricornia (Dr Everingham). He referred to a time when it was alleged that some members of the Young Country Party had discussed national service. The honourable member implied that the persons concerned did not have to worry very much because they knew someone who knew someone and hence would not be much worried about being subject to call-up. I strongly urge the honourable member for Capricornia to make known who these particular people are, because whoever gave him this information I would assume would be a damned liar. I make this comment for this reason.
