Sir PHILIP McBRIDE - It is a fact that a great many East German residents have gone over to West Germany territory. I understand that they are going over at a steady rate of something like 250,000 a year. As a consequence, the population of East Germany is decreasing whilst the population of West Germany is increasing very rapidly. That, I think, is a clear indication that the German people are not satisfied with the Communist regime in East Germany, and would like a change if they could get it.

I have no comment to make about the similarity between the policy of the East German Government and that of the Labour party, as referred to by the honorable member.

Suggest corrections
