Mr GILES (Angas) - Mr Speaker,1 will not take up 60 seconds of the time of the House. 1 just want to point out to the House and to the Minister for Defence (Mr Barnard) that members of the armed services stationed at Butterworth near Penang have mentioned to me lately that they feel that their welfare could be improved considerably if on humanitarian grounds the Government were to organise periodic charter flights so that the relations of those people who are up there for a long term could visit the serving personnel in those areas. I will say no more than that. I merely sow the seed and hope that in due course the Minister might treat it as a question on notice and look into the matter.
