Mr MAISEY (MOORE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Immigration. Why was Mr H. L. Davies, Senior Dairy Officer in the Department of Research and Specialist Services, Salisbury, who was invited by the Australian National Dairy Committee to attend the 54th International Dairy Federation Congress in Sydney refused permission to enter Australia? Why was the visa granted to Mr Davies in Pretoria withdrawn, and was it withdrawn on instructions from Canberra? If it was not withdrawn on instructions from Canberra, on whose instructions was it withdrawn? Why was Mr R. S. Garfield Todd, a permanent resident of Rhodesia, allowed to enter Australia last week and Mr Davies refused permission? Finally, as Mr Garfield Todd made statements to the Press on his arrival in Australia which were offensive to many former Rhodesians now resident in Australia, was this a violation of his privileged entry?
