ABSTRACT
The article reports on the immigration policies in Australia. It mentions that in 1952, the Prime Minister of Immigration in Australia, Harold Holt, has established a milestone of sorts by ruling that Japanese wives of Australian servicemen could enter the country in spite of the tight restriction on Asian immigrants. It notes that Holt ordered a re-examination of the country's immigration policies with a view to bring them more in line with the country's emerging awareness.
