Senator LYNCH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I wish to ask the Minister representing the Prime Minister whether he has noticed in the press that the mad rush of immigrants to Australia still continues, that they cannot secure berths until next December; and whether, in view of that fact, the Government will take steps to see that on the steamers thers is no overcrowding of those people who are wanting to come to Australia? My second point is, does not the Minister consider it a fair thing to make known to these immigrants to Australia with a little capital the risk which they run in coming to a country where a Labour Government is in power ?
