Mr HADLEY (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - Did the Minister for Immigration notice a report in the most recent issue of the Sydney Sunday Telegraph which stated that a portion of the quarantine area at North Head, Sydney, is to be set aside as a reception centre for persons awaiting deportation, who will be housed there instead of being held in gaol? Was the report correct in claiming that this step was being taken as the result of diplomatic pressure, or was it prompted by political malice on the part of the Sunday Telegraph?
