Prime Minister Scott Morrison has downplayed concerns that a new cap on Australia’s permanent migrant intake will have an impact on economic growth. Business Council of Australia CEO Jennifer Westacott and Australia Industry Group CEO Innes Willox are among the business leaders who have warned that cutting the migrant intake could impact on the economy. Morrison argues that the larger cut advocated by some cabinet ministers would have had an effect on economic growth.
