Mr HOWSE (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Immigration whether he is aware that the English author and playwright, J. B.

Priestley, has stated that the passport system is one of the greatest enemies to international co-operation. Did Mr. Priestley further state that the passport system does not protect a country from crooks, as any international crook has a suitcase full of passports? If there is any substance whatsoever in Mr. Priestley's statements, will the Minister consider an alternative system to the long-established and internationally accepted passport system?
