Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (15:40): I move:

That the Senate—

(a) expresses its concern over the Federal Government's budget cuts to the Red Cross Migrant Support Program that will result in 500 job losses across South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and Victoria;

(b) notes the negative impacts that these job losses will have on the welfare and health services available to refugee and asylum seeker families living in the community; and

(c) calls on the Government to reverse these cuts.
