Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question to the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs follows the statement by the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs on 31 January 1980.I ask whether the Minister includes marihuana in the category of illicit drugs. In his statement he said:

Accordingly, in the absence of compelling circumstances, people who render themselves liable to deportation because of convictions for involvement in the production, importation, distribution or trafficking of illicit drugs have been and will continue to be deported.


Senator Dame Margaret Guilfoyle (VICTORIA) - I understand that the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs includes marihuana in those circumstances.
