Senator ANDERSON - I cannot accept the generalisations made by the honorable senator in relation to this matter. Every migrant is regarded as an individual case by the Department of Immigration. I do not think the honorable senator can generalise in this regard. I do not consider it is appropriate or proper that he should make the statement that he has just made in relation to violence. In my opinion, such a statement is quite unfair and does a grave injustice to the great number of migrants who have made a real contribution to the magnificent development that has taken place in this country.

Having said those things, 1 will refer the honorable senator's comments to the Minister for Immigration.
