Mrs BLACKBURN (BOURKE, VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Immigration relating to material which I received in my mail this morning. Enclosed with a letter which I received from a member of one Melbourne church were cuttings from the Melbourne Herald of the 31st May. I am advised that these reports give an official statement, word for word, as it was issued by the responsible body. Has the Minister read the report in the Melbourne Herald that the State executive of the Presbyterian Young Men's Fellowship has absolved Mr. Raymond Jenkins of the Minister's charge that he was the " dupe " of another organization ? Has the Minister read the detailed explanation which states that the Christian Social Order Committee of the Fellowship had deputed Mr. Jenkins to proceed to Canberra to place before the Minister a particular point of view on the White Australia policy! Has the Minister learned that this point of view waa in accordance with the decision of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Victoria?
