Mr TOWNLEY - The Department of Immigration has, for some years now, kept a very close watch on this problem. Mr. Justice Dovey, of New South Wales, some time ago made two inquiries into crime involving immigrants. I shall not weary the House with a long dissertation; I think it is sufficient to say that the figures show that the incidence of crime amongst immigrants is very much lower than it is amongst the Australian population. This finding has been made by Mr. Justice Dovey. He has just completed a third inquiry into the same matter, and I hope to be able to publish his findings from that inquiry within the next few weeks.
