Downer said that he believed the excellent results attained in 1961/62 were mainly due to the simplified procedure for applying for naturalisation which was introduced at the beginning of 1961. Although the essential requirements for citizenship had not been reduced the new form of application for naturalisation had been made much easier for eligible newcomers. All that the department of immigration required on the application form was the new settler s name address Date and place of birth. Other necessary information was later obtained in a Friendly interview with the applicant. It was heartening to find that the streamlining of the procedure for applying for citizenship had increased the number of naturalisation throughout the Commonwealth he said.
