Mr KERIN (MACARTHUR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Immigration whether it is a fact that officers of his Department when applying for overseas postings may be at a disadvantage due to the length of their hair and their mode of dress.

Mr GRASSBY (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Immigration) - I have not heard that there has been any difficulty in arranging postings for officers of the Department of Immigration on that score. I would not have thought that brightness in dress was a disqualification for either this Parliament or the Department. I will certainly look into the matter and let the honourable member have a reply.
