Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honorable member for East Sydney has asked his question, and will allow the Treasurer to make his reply.

Mr HAROLD HOLT - I am sure that at least the Leader of the Opposition will give his approval to the statement I am about to make. To the best of my knowledge the movement of migrant labour from the reception camps has proceeded smoothly up to the present time. In conclusion, I assure the honorable gentleman that it is not the intention of this Government, having had the great satisfaction of leading the country during the period in which it has enjoyed its greatest prosperity and the greatest improvement in its living standards, to allow that position to abate. Indeed, all our policies are directed to the steady development and expansion of the Australian economy and the improvement of the standards of the people.
