Mr DOWNER (ANGAS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Immigration) - I think I am right in saying that in the calendar year 1960 a total of 932 people of Asian origin was naturalized in Australia. Of that number, 416 were in New Guinea and the remaining 516 were in Australia itself. As to the second part of the honorable gentleman's question, it would be purely conjectural on my part to anticipate what future naturalizations in this category would be. However, if I may hazard a guess of my own without committing myself in any way, I should imagine that they would be fewer rather than more.
