Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration, upon notice -

1.   Is a group of 12 Russian tourists, including members of the Russian Communist Party, now in Australia?

2.   Were these tourists granted visitors' visas? If so, why are members of the Russian Communist Party granted visas to tour Australia while an ex-member of the Communist Party of Germany is refused a visa to visit his children and grandchildren?

3.   Is membership of the Communist Party of one country more desirable than membership of the same party in another country, or is tourism more desirable than family reunions?
