Mr HOLT (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for Immigration state whether he has taken an opportunity in recent weeks to review the arrangements covering both the treatment and accommodation of child migrants who reach Australia in a weakened or undernourished condition? In particular, will the honorable gentleman give consideration to a suggestion which has reached me from the nursing profession, that children who are obviously weak or undernourished on arrival in Australia should be treated at the children's hospitals at Perth or Melbourne instead of being taken to migrants' camps?
