Senator LYNCH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Isthe Prime Minister correctly reported in the Melbourne Herald of 14th November, as saying that the most this country could absorb under present arrangements was from 12,000 to 20,000 immigrants, and as indorsing that estimate?

2.   If so, does the Prime Minister consider that estimate coincides with present normal requirements, or even past experience extending over a considerable period?
