Mr GULLETT (HENTY, VICTORIA) - Arising out of' the statement of the Minister for Immigration in Sydney recently, that immigration visas had been prepared for some 2,000 alien immigrants to Australia, and in view of the shortage of shipping and of other considerations, including the obvious question of preference, I ask the Minister whether these alien immigrants will receive preference over British subjects who wish to come here? Will they, in fact, be .permitted to enter this country before all those who wish to come here from Britain have arrived. In view of the anti-British activities of members of the Zionist organization, will the Minister see that no members of that organization, who have no intention of becoming good Australians and no intention of becoming loyal British subjects, are included in the quota?
