Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Population Policy Tim Smith
The Greens announcement to dramatically increase the annual refugee intake to 50,000 is another loopy idea from the Greens.
This announcement shows why the Liberal Nationals population policy taskforce is critically important to ensure cities like Melbourne remain among the most liveable in the world.
To effectively double the refugee intake without putting forward any corresponding policies about more and better roads and transport as well as a jobs plan shows how reckless the Greens are.
Melbourne is already growing by nearly 100,000 people every year.
Daniel Andrews has no jobs plan or housing plan to accommodate this growth.
That’s why Matthew Guy has launched the Liberal Nationals Population Taskforce to make sure we properly plan for our future in terms of infrastructure, jobs and housing instead of ad hoc announcements like these by Sarah Hanson Young.
