Mr Lynch asked the Minister for Immigration, upon notice:

(1)   Where and when have there been meetings of the Immigration Ministers since 4th December 1972.

(2)   What were the names and portfolios of the Ministers who attended those meetings.

(3)   What (a) financial requests and (b) other requests were made by (i) the Commonwealth, (ii) the Territories and (iii) the States.

(4)   When will the next meeting of the Immigration Ministers take place.

Mr Grassby - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2) and (3) There has not been a meeting of Immigration Ministers since 4th December 1972.

The last Conference of Ministers was held in Canberra on 25th February 1972 when it was decided that the Ministers should meet again on a date to be decided in the period September-November 1972.

My predecessor later decided that the Conference should be deferred until a date early this year because of the proximity of the proposed date to the recent Elections.

(4)   After consulting with State Ministers, I have now decided that the next Conference will be held in Brisbane on 13th April 1973.
