Senator WALTERS(4.35) —I wish to ask a question of the Minister for Resources and Energy (Senator Gareth Evans) who is representing the Attorney-General (Mr Lionel Bowen). In a situation where certain people are given migrant status and bring more than one wife into Australia, can he tell me the status of those wives within the Australian context? Last time I asked him privately about this he said something pretty vague. He said that some do have status and some do not. Could he give me more detail?
