Senator BROWN (VICTORIA) - I ask the AttorneyGeneral whether he has formulated any opinion on the application by Mr Paul Fox under section 29a of the National Service Act 1951, as amended, which was referred to his Department by the Minister for Labour and National Service? If he has not I ask him whether he is aware that it is over 7 weeks since the original application was sent to the Director of Labour and National Service in Melbourne? When did the Minister's Department receive the referred matter for advice? Will the Minister expedite the advice sought by his colleague in another place?

Senator GREENWOOD - I am unable to give the precise dates in response to the honourable senator's question. It is a fact that advice was sought from my Department and that that advice was given to the Department of Labour and National Service some time ago. But I must say that the gentleman about whom the honourable senator has been inquiring - whatever be his conscientious views - certainly has been playing ducks and drakes with the law.
