Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration. Can the Minister advise me of the number of Croatians in addition to Mr Rover and Mr Senic who have had their passports revoked due to activities that could embarrass Australia in the diplomatic world?

Senator GREENWOOD (VICTORIA) (Attorney-General) - I have certain information from the Minister for Immigration which, as I understand it, gives total figures. It is also assumed in the information I give that Senator Mulvihills question refers to naturalised Australians of Yugoslav origin. I understand that the passports of 5 such persons have been cancelled after their departure from Australia and that passports were refused two other persons seeking to leave Australia.
