35    Immigration intake

The Leader of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (Senator Hanson), pursuant to notice, moved general business notice of motion no. 513—That the Senate—

               (a)       notes that Australia has the largest per capita immigration program in the world; and

               (b)       calls on the Government to address the extremely high, unsustainable immigration intake, including from both permanent and temporary residency visas, that:

                                     (i)       impacts on local, state and Federal Government delivery and planning for the supply of water, power and gas, and the protection of arable land for food production,

                                    (ii)       overburdens infrastructure, including roads and transport, telecommunications, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, sewerage, government welfare and services, and

                                  (iii)       has put a strain on available residential land, affordable housing, standard of living and employment prospects, including under-employment.

Debate ensued.

Question put and negatived.
