Mr CLEAVER - I direct a question to the Minister for Immigration concerning the many immigrants from South Africa who have come to Australia recently hoping that their families may be able to join them within a reasonable time. Is the Minister aware that shipping between South Africa and Australia is very poor and immigrants are finding that passages cannot be booked for some years? As air passages are so costly, will the Department of Immigration explore the possibility of special shipping arrangements to enable families to be reunited in Australia?
