Mr SWARTZ (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister for Immigration inform the House of the proportion of British immigrants in the total number of immigrants brought to Australia since 1945? Is it anticipated that this proportion will increase under the proposed scheme for the next financial year? Is Australia still attracting more British immigrants than other British Commonwealth countries such as Canada? My final question refers to immigrants from all countries. Is it a fact that the proportion of new Australians skilled in certain trades is greater than the proportion of Australians in the total Australian population who are skilled in those trades? If this is so, can the Minister give the House the respective proportions?
