Mr CALWELL - I have read the report to which the honorable member has referred. I doubt its accuracy. If we had to purchase copies of the report, even at cost price, as the Leader of the Opposition has suggested, a large part of our sterling reserves in London would be eaten up. I do not believe that the report cost anything like the sum mentioned by the newspaper. I shall make inquiries to see whether copies of it are available in Australia and advise the honorable member and others concerned accordingly so that if copies are available they may read the latest information upon the population prospects of the United Kingdom.
