Four British schoolchildren are being given a VIP tour of Australia as guests of the government. They are the winners of an essay competition which the Immigration Department organised throughout Britain. The Minister for Immigration, Mr Downer personally chose the winners who are, Ann Wills, 15, from London, Shirley Godfrey, 12 of Nottingham, John Bailey, 15, from Cheshire and David Clark, 15, of Aberdeen. The aim of the competition was to stimulate British migration to Australia and to give the future generations of Britons an accurate picture of modern Australia.
