Calls to cut immigration intake by over 100,000 people

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott will make a speech at the Sydney Institute tonight, suggesting Australia cap migration intake at 110,000 a year.

Population growth is a hot topic, with Australia currently accepting around 190,000 people per year.

President of Sustainable Australia, William Bourke, tells Ben Fordham a target of 110,000 is still too high.

“It’s good to see [Mr Abbott] talking about that.

“Of course, better not bigger is our slogan but we’re saying it needs to go back to a cap of 70,000.

“The Australian people are calling for lower immigration in just about every poll you have. So let’s do it.”
