Mr Hodges asked the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs, upon notice, on 19 February 1980:

(1)   Has his attention been drawn to an article which appeared in the Australian of Thursday, 1 March 1979, entitled 'Government may restrict entry of doctors' in which it is stated that virtually all doctors who have entered Australia recently have been approved because they have had firm job offers.

(2)   If so, (a) how many doctors migrated to Australia and filled pre-arranged job vacancies in 1976 and 1977 and (b) how many of those doctors are still employed in the same positions.

Mr Macphee - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Yes.

(2)   (a) and (b). This information is not available. The Department does not keep records of the employment placements of individual migrants in Australia.
