Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Immigration: Has the effect of the economic restrictions influenced the Government to review- the immigration programme? Does the Government consider the availability of housing and employment when setting the rate of migrant intake? Will the present trend towards large-scale unemployment and the serious housing shortage cause a substantial reduction of the migrant intake below the usual intake of 125,000 per annum?
