Mr DOWNER (ANGAS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Immigration) - As I told the House some little time ago, I believe that the immigration target for the year ending 30th June next will be achieved and, if anything, it might be a little exceeded. The Government, of course, is keeping a close watch on employment opportunities in the future. It has always done so and that is why, over the years, and especially during this Government's tenure of office, the immigration programme has operated so smoothly and successfully. My honorable friend may be quite assured that the Government will do nothing to interrupt its fine record in that respect.
