§ 30. Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Labour what percentage of the number of men liable to be called up under the National Service Act in the year 1949 represents the number liable to register under that Act.
§ Mr. Isaacs
The number of men to be called up in 1949 represents about 57 per cent. of the estimated number liable to register in 1949. The two figures are not, however, comparable. Those called up this year will include many who registered last year and earlier. Those who register this year will include many not due to be called up till next year.
