Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask a question of the Minister for Immigration concerning new Australians who have left relatives behind the iron curtain and are anxious for them to come out to this country. Is it considered dangerous for these people to nominate their relatives, as they might then be subjected to victimization by Soviet secret police? If not, how should they go about applying to have these people brought out to Australia, where they can begin a new life? Have any relatives of immigrants been able to reach Australia from behind the iron curtain in the last few years?
