150. Mr. Low

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will make a statement about the scheme to recruit 4,500 men in Britain for six-year engagements with the Australian Regular Army; and what terms are to be offered to these men.

Mr. M. Stewart

The Australian Regular Army wishes to recruit in the United Kingdom some 2,500 technicians and tradesmen. Later, 2,000 administrative personnel may be required. Details of the scheme are under discussion between the Australian military representatives in this country and the Departments concerned.
