Senator ROBERTSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY) -My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs. When can a decision be expected on the family reunification scheme proposed at the recent meeting of immigration Ministers by Mr Dondas of the Northern Territory? What decision was taken on the other proposal to settle 400 Vietnamese refugees in the

Northern Territory? If the supply of Vietnamese refugees is drying up, as suggested in the media, will the Minister consider negotiating with Indonesia to allow refugee families from Timor to take their place?

Senator Dame MARGARET GUILFOYLE -A number of matters are raised by Senator Robertson. I will get the information from the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs and see that the honourable senator is advised.
