Prime Minister Scott Morrison will cut the number of migrants coming to Australia, declaring the "roads are clogged" and buses, trains and schools in Sydney and Melbourne "are full". In a dramatic shift in rhetoric as cabinet plots a new population policy, the Prime Minister predicted the impending changes would lower the annual immigration target from its cap of 190,000. "Population growth has played a key role in our economic success. But I also know Australians in our biggest cities are concerned about population," Mr Morrison said. "The roads are clogged, the buses and trains are… Далее

Currently, about two-fifths of Australia's 25 million people live in… Далее

The most recent handovers involved less blood-letting and more internal party politics. The attack on Turnbull came over his energy policy. He had proposed reducing carbon emissions, per the Paris climate agreement, but other members of the… Далее

Australia's population is set to hit 25 million in August, and Liberal senator Dean Smith wants to start a discussion about how infrastructure is going to keep up with demand.

"Population issues are broader than immigration issues, but wherever you go across the country you can see different sorts of population challenges," he told the local media. "In regional communities you might see lack of… Далее

National migration rate hasn’t been this low since 2007 and it’s all to do with Peter Dutton waging war on “fraudulent” claims. Australia’s migration rate is the lowest it’s been in 10 years, largely due to Peter Dutton and the way the Department of Home Affairs has cracked down on “fraudulent” migrants. In the past financial year, the nation’s migration rate has dropped by 10 per cent with 21,000 less people being allowed into Australia. Speaking on the media show the last week, the Home Affairs Minister said the drop was about “restoring integrity to our… Далее
