Minister for Immigration
3rd August, 1948.
My dear Prime Minister,
I refer to your letter of 29th July, in regard to representations made to you by Mr. G. Simos of The Paragon Cafe, Katoomba, on behalf of Mr. Constantine Simos who travelled to Australia under the name of Charles Cassematis and desires to remain here permanently.
I have given this matter furher consideration in the light of the additional information furnished and have decided not to take any action to enforce the departure of Mr. C. Simos from the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Migration Officer, Sydney, has been instructed to remove all restrictions placed upon Mr. Simons under the Immigration Act.
