JOHN HOWARD, M.P.MEMBER FOR BENNELONGSHA1i0 MINISTER FOR INDUSTRIALR^I,ATIQNS. EMPLOYMENT S, TRAINING IR 027/93

JJ4XIGRATION AND UNEMPLOYMENT

Eighteen months ago, the Prime Minister branded as "racist" calls by both John Hewson and me on behalf of the Coalition for lower immigration levels to ease the unemployment situation,

Yesterday, in his speech to the National Press Club, the Employment Minister, Kim Beazley, precisely acknowledged the very link between unemployment and immigration to which Dr Hewson and I had alluded early in 1992.

In so doing, Mr Beazley has not only vindicated the legitimacy of our concern but has also exposed both the fallacy and the moral bankruptcy of the Prime Minister's McCarthyist attack on Dr Hewson and myself last year.
