Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Immigration. To what extent, if any. has the migrant intake from South Africa increased since the Sharpeville massacre? Is it true to say that when South Africa leaves the Commonwealth, Australia will be bound no longer, in its dealing with that country, by the understanding that exists between Commonwealth countries that poaching of population will not take place without the consent of the country concerned? Finally, does the Government propose to grant the proBritish population of South Africa the same kind of assistance to escape from South African republicanism and the consequences of apartheid as it granted to displaced persons and to Hungarians and others who migrated to Australia to escape from communism?
