Mr MAHON (COOLGARDIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Has the Prime Minister observed a report by cablegram that the United States Congress proposes to repeal that portion of the American immigration restriction law under which admission is denied to penniless or incapacitated persons who are fugitives from religious or political persecutions in other countries? I wish also to know whether the Commonwealth Immigration Restriction Act has ever been used to exclude from Australia any person who, owing to religious or political persecution abroad, has sought refuge in this country ?
