  •   Speech to the Murray Region Futures Conference 2010  Mildura Victoria  By Warren Truss, Leader of The Nationals and Shadow Minister for Trade, Transport and Local  Government  “Infrastructure Planning and Population”  19 July 2010  (Check against delivery)    Ladies and gentlemen,    The subject of population and planning is one that has shadowed me for most my career.  As a  young chairman of a country town council, I was anxious to see my town grow and for its people to  have every possible service and facility.    In my early days as a Federal MP, I was involved in what was probably the first ever parliamentary  inquiry into Australia’s population, where we looked at all of the associated issues of population  growth and infrastructure needs.    The chairman of that inquiry was Barry Jones, a man who defined the term “deep thinker”. Yet for all  our efforts â€ and for all the intellectual horsepower contained in Barry’s head - there was no  consensus on what Australia’s population should be and what we as parliamentarians should be  doing to ensure the nation could cope.  This was 20 years ago and the enquiry probably ahead of its  time.    Perhaps that lack of consensus only reflected the views within the Australian public. The committee  received submissions advocating an Australian population ranging from five million to 250 million.    We will always have a spirited debate about a sustainable population for Australia, from any number  of angles. Kevin Rudd, as you will recall, seemed to be a fan of “a big Australia”. Julia Gillard says she  is not.      The Greens want a vastly reduced population to protect the environment, yet argue the case for  vastly more refugees.    Former Prime Minister Rudd, quoted as favouring a population for Australia of 36 million by 2050 -  but if immigration continues at the level of the last two and a half years, demographers tell us our  population would be 42 million by 2050 or almost double the current number.    The Coalition also realises that we cannot swing wildly from one extreme to the other, and there  must be serious policy work, consultation and proper process.  The economy slows dramatically if  there is no population growth, our population must be sustainable.    I recently addressed the General Assembly of the Australian Local Government Association on  similar issues, and I commented that probably half the delegates there were desperately seeking a  larger population and were spending ratepayers’ money encouraging new investment, new industry  and more people.     The other half were resisting higher density living, urban sprawl and industry encroachment, and  some even had population caps.
