The Federal Government may require future migrants to have basic English language skills in order to qualify for permanent residency. There is growing concern that many migrants lack sufficient English language skills, which affects their ability to integrate and gain employment. Analysis of Census data suggests that more than one million people in Australia may have limited or no English language skills by 2021. The proposal for migrants to have minimum conversational language skills will be outlined by Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Minister Alan Tudge on 14 June.
