Senator GREENWOOD - The Minister for Immigration has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The survey of 10,000 migrants will not cover persons already in Australia. The plan is to select a representative cross-section from all settler arrivals during a coming twelve-month period. In this way, the 10,000 migrants will represent, for example, the pattern of nationalities, the geographical distribution, and the occupational categories included in the actual migrant intake during this period. The surveywill follow their economic and social integration during their first 3 years of residence. It is the object of the survey to test basic assumptions about the pattern of immigration and to obtain data by which to improve further immigration procedures.
