Mr TOWNLEY - Under the ceiling that has been fixed, we may bring in only 115,000 immigrants each year, apart from immigrants from the United Kingdom, in respect of whom there is no limit. We are now bringing in from Cyprus, and from other Mediterranean countries, the close relatives of families already in Australia, but, obviously, the ceiling prevents us from bringing in all who wish to come.

Mr CLYDE CAMERON (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Then the Government will not bring in any Cypriots?

Mr TOWNLEY - Cypriots are coming to Australia in groups.
