“The Australian Government is not in a position at present to offer any special encouragment to Jews at present resident in southern European countries to migrate to Australia”.
This statement was made today to the J.T.A. in a letter replying to the Agency’s recent inquiry in regard to the introduction of Jewish immigrants to Australia.
“The Australian assisted immigration activities of the Commonwealth are for the present being confined mainly to the introduction of farmers, farm workers and female domestic servants from Great Britain, and the British government is cooperating with the Commonwealth Government in facilitating such immigration”, states the official Secretary to the N.Y. Commissioner for the Commonwealth of Australia.
