Senator Withers asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, upon notice:

(1)   How many airmen, other than officers, were reengaged in the Air Force in each month in 1 973 and in each month in 1974.

(2)   What was the number re-engaged in each rank.

(3)   How many were over 38 years of age.

(4)   What, if any, notice are Air Force personnel required to give of their intention to re-engage.

Senator Bishop - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) The numbers of airmen by rank re-engaging in the air Force in each month of the period 1 January 1 973 to 30 June 1974 were:


(3)   Not available. This information is not kept for management purposes and would require a manual check and calculation of age from each of the 3,499 member's individual Service records.

(4)   Airmen may defer election to re-engage until the last day of the current period of engagement, if desired. However, the majority of re-engagement elections are made at the 1 1 to 12 month period prior to the completion of current engagement.
