Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Treasurer. Did the right honorable gentleman recently announce that the intake of migrants into Australia would be increased . from 115,000 to 125,000 a year? Does this mean that Victoria will be expected to absorb more migrants than previously? If this is so, will the Minister take the necessary action to ensure that the serious unemployment situation which exists in Victoria at present will not be further aggravated by any increase of the intake of migrants into that State?
