Mr GEORGE LAWSON (BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND) - 1 ask the

Minister for Immigration whether, as reported, the Government has relaxed the immigration laws or regulations so as to permit the naturalization of aliens. Is it true that, as a result of such relaxation, a Chinese national residing in Sydney was recently naturalized? If so, can the Minister say how long this Chinese had resided in Australia? Have the immigration laws or regulations been relaxed so as to give permanent residency status to Chinese citizens who have resided in Australia for fifteen years or more?
