Download PDF for this date

The Times reports from Canberra today that 4,000 German and Austrian Jews are seeking admission to Australia, thus embarrassing the Government which fears the possible effects of large-scale immigration upon employment. The Government, according to the dispatch, also fears that admittance of a large group is likely to lead to creation of enclaves not easily assimilated into the general community.
