Mr DOWNER (ANGAS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Immigration) - I am interested in what the honorable gentleman has said, as apparently he and some of his friends behind him have some sentiment for Chile because of political reasons. To my knowledge, Australia has had no migrants from that country so far. Of course we, as a Government, are very sympathetic towards the Chilean people in the great disasters that have befallen their country. I shall certainly investigate the honorable gentleman's request, but without being able to promise that anything can be done to accede to it.
