Opperman. Said that the theme of the convention involved immediately the whole question of the 250,000 residential qualified settlers who had not applied for naturalization.

We know also that among those eligible but not naturalized Are children of settlers who Are growing up to regard themselves As australians and we know that this in itself is an important reason Why families should become naturalized or.
