Senator McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Will the Minister for Markets and Migration state whether the Government has considered a proposal from the associatedCaladonian Societies of southeastern South Australia for the introduction of Scottish immigrants as settlers in the south-eastern portion oftheState?

Senator Sir VICTOR WILSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Some months ago Mr. Livingston, formerly member for Barker in the House of Representatives, interviewed me in regard to a scheme for settling Scottish immigrants in the south-eastern portion of South Australia, but I informed him that any scheme for the settlement of immigrants must be brought to the notice of the Commonwealth by a State Government. I understand that Mr. Livingston has since taken steps to bring his scheme under the notice of the Government of South Australia, but so far that Government has not yet officially approached the Commonwealth in regard to it.
