Mr GULLETT (HENTY, VICTORIA) - According to a report in the Melbourne Argus, 275 Jewish refugees are waiting at Shanghai for a ship to bring them to Australia. The report adds that they are spending their time studying the leaflets about Australia prepared by the Department of Information. Can the Minister for Immigration say whether these persons are some of the 2^000 whose entry into Australia he has recently approved? Does the Government intend to place any limit on the number of migrants of. this sort? Does, the Government propose to take action to ensure that the acquisition of migrants of this kind is offset by the arrival of a suitable proportion of migrants of British stock?
