Sir WILFRID KENT HUGHES (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I direct to the Minister for Immigration a question which arises from an unfortunate experience of one of my constituents quite recently. Is there a New Zealand law authorizing discrimination in respect of passports as between Australian-born and naturalized Australian citizens when passing through New Zealand? If so, will the Government take up the matter with the

New Zealand Government with a view to obtaining for naturalized Australian citizens in New Zealand the same legal status as is enjoyed by Australian-born citizens? If there is no such law, will the Government make representations to the New Zealand Government to ensure that in future the Auckland authorities will refrain from treating naturalized Australian citizens differently from natural-born citizens?
