In early February 1993 the government rejected an Irving visa request for a lecture tour, arguing his visit would cause disruption. But the Supreme Court later overturned that ruling and told the government to reconsider Irving's request. Irving's view that the Holocaust was exaggerated and happened without Adolf Hitler's knowledge has outraged mainstream historians, and Jewish groups in particular. ``I have decided to reject Mr Irving's (visa) application on the basis that he does not meet the public interest criteria of good character in the migration regulations,'' Immigration Minister Nick Bolkus told parliament. Bolkus said Irving's deportation from Canada and exclusion from Germany disqualified him under the good character rules. He said a second application from Irving to visit Australia in June this year had been rejected on the same grounds.
