Senator LYNCH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask the Vice-President of the Executive Council, without notice, whether he has observed in this morning's newspaper a cablegram reporting a mad rush of immigrants to Aus- tralia?* In view of that fact, will the Government advise the High Commissioner to see to it that there is no overcrowding of vessels with people who want to get away from the Old Country, and come to the Commonwealth? Secondly, I desire to ask whether' the Government will instruct the High Commissioner to warn the immigrants that there is a Labour Government in power in Australia, and that they must be prepared for calamities on that account ?
