Mr BRUCE - As promised, I have made inquiries into the matter referred: to by the honorable member for Kalgoorlie (Mr. A. Green)- the remand in the Croydon Police Court of a man charged with theft, to enable him to emigrate to Australia. The case alluded to was first raised in February last, when the High Commissioner, London, advised that this man had made an application for an assisted passage months before he was charged in the Court. The immigration authorities in London investigated his character, and criminal charges having been 'traced against him, his application for an assisted passage was immediately rejected. I may mention that this action was taken before the Police Court proceedings were instituted.
