Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Will the Minister for Immigration inform me whether a screening organization has been set up at The Hague to screen prospective Dutch immigrants? Is the screening political, or in relation to health? Has any person been appointed to take charge of the screening? If such a. person has been appointed, is he an official of the Department of Immigration, or was he selected for the position from outside applicants?

Mr HOLT - There is a screening organization at The Hague, and Australian officers are stationed there. So far as I am aware, the screening .methods which are employed at The Hague do not differ substantially from those which have been applied in other areas and other places. However, I shall ascertain whether I can get a detailed statement for the honorable gentleman on that subject.
