Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2013-06-27.19.1) to read the Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013 for a third time.
  • This means that the bill has passed through the House of Representatives and can now be sent to the Senate for their consideration.
  • _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 [Scott Morrison](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Scott_Morrison&mpc=Cook&house=representatives) argued that the amendment was designed to “choke the 457 scheme” and do “the bidding of the unions”.(Read MP Morrison's comments [here](http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2013-06-26.35.1). )
  • _Background to the Bill_
  • The [Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Visas) Bill 2013](http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5068) was introduced by Labor MP [Brendan O'Connor](http://publicwhip-rails.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Brendan_O%26%2339%3BConnor&mpc=Gorton&house=representatives) 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 [here](http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2013-06-06.3.2). ) At the time this bill was introduced, the [457 visa program](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/457_visa) was receiving extensive media attention with claims that it was being misused.(See [ABC News](http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-02/an-457-crackdown/4728148). A simple explanation of the 457 visa scheme can be found on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s website [here](http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/skilled-workers/sbs/).)

  • <p class="speaker">Scott Morrison</p>
  • <p>I do not wish to delay the House. It was my intention earlier to allow the member for Lyne to give his valedictory speech and I look forward to that speech. But it is worth noting that as we move to this third reading, this is a Prime Minister who has failed this first test of decency in this parliament. This is a Prime Minister who has imposed the union agenda again on this parliament. The amendments that I had circulated and tabled, and wished to be considered in the third reading, were important and went to particular issues in the bill. That opportunity was denied by this government and that is regrettable. With those statements, I am happy to proceed. To the member for Lyne, whom I have known for a very long time, I wish him and his family all the best.</p>
