Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2013-06-27.16.13 motion] to agree to the Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013 as amended.
  • This means that the members can now decide whether to pass the bill through the House of Representatives by giving the bill a third reading.
  • ''Debate in Parliament''
  • While considering the bill in detail, the House of Representatives agreed to a government amendment that introduced new labour market testing requirements and legislatively established the Ministerial Advisory Council on Skilled Migration, which must have union representation. Liberal MP [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Scott_Morrison&mpc=Cook&house=representatives Scott Morrison] argued that the amendment was designed to “choke the 457 scheme” and do “the bidding of the unions”.(Read MP Morrison's comments [http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2013-06-26.35.1 here]. )
  • ''Background to the Bill''
  • The [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5068 Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013] was introduced by Labor MP [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Brendan_O%26%2339%3BConnor&mpc=Gorton&house=representatives Brendan O'Connor] to “enhance the government's ability to deter sponsor behaviour which is inconsistent with the policy intent of the subclass 457 visa program and other temporary employer sponsored visa programs”.(Read MP O'Connor's comments [http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2013-06-06.3.2 here]. ) At the time this bill was introduced, the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/457_visa 457 visa program] was receiving extensive media attention with claims that it was being misused.(See [http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-02/an-457-crackdown/4728148 ABC News]. A simple explanation of the 457 visa scheme can be found on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s website [http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/skilled-workers/sbs/ here].)
