RETURNING DRAFTS

KEY OFFICERS EXCEPTED Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. i The Tenth Reinforcement will be included in the drafts of New Zealand troops to be brought home from the Middle East. This was made clear by the Prime Minister, Mr. Fraser, in his speech on the future war effort of the Dominion in the House of Representatives last night. Referring to the decision to bring back 20,000 men, Mr. Fraser said that right up to, and including the Tenth Reinforcement, would be brought back, with the possible exception of certain key officers. He was certain none of them would want to go out if they thought that would let down the Division. However, it was hoped to replace them, too, as soon as possible. Dealing with the departure of the New Zealand forces from Italy, he said no decision had been made that could have been indicated to the House that the Division was going to leave the European theatre. That was a general consequence and a general arrangement had been made for New Zealanders to leave Trieste: It was desired that they should be out and back as soon as possible.
