Deputy Opposition leader Tanya Plibersek has indicated that Labor is prepared to consider the federal government’s proposal to reduce Australia’s overall migrant intake and give the states more input into the issue of immigration. However, she has criticised a proposal by Prime Minister Scott Morrison to reduce the annual cap on permanent migrants by up to 30,000. Cities Minister Alan Tudge has conceded that government revenue would be affected by any reduction in the migrant intake.
