Mr BRUCE - Yesterday I answered a question upon notice regarding the number of migrants who, during a number of years, have been incarcerated in mental homes. Fortunately, the percentage is very low. I also referred the honorable gentleman to a statement that I had previously made in the House respecting the medical examination to which all intending migrants to Australia are submitted. I shall have full inquiries made into the case in question. We are at all times watching closely the administration to ensure that the provisions for medical examination are properly and thoroughly carried out.
