Senator BROWN (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration. Would the issue of passports by a person or persons or an organisation in Australia other than the appropriate department be a breach of Commonwealth law? If the Minister agrees that such conduct is a breach of Commonwealth law, what action has been taken against the person whom I have cited in correspondence to the Attorney-General, which person is said to be the person from whom such passports are available? j

Senator GREENWOOD - I am unable to answer the particular matter which the honourable senator has raised. I would assume that the issue of forged passports would be an offence against law. I ask the honourable senator to put his question on notice, and I will have the matter investigated.
