Senator WILLESEE asked the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration, upon notice:

How many prosecutions have been launched in each of the last 5 years against aliens under the Aliens Act for alleged failure to register as aliens, and how many of these prosecutions were successful.

Senator GREENWOOD The Minister for Immigration has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

Aliens do not fail to register. The basic registration mainly takes place at the time of visa issue and is completed at point of entry. To supplement this basic registration, aliens over 16 years of age permanently living in Australia have to notify their current addresses in September each year. No prosecutions for failure to notify have been launched since the 1966 annual notification.
