Nationals told farm visa plan won’t work


The Nationals have reportedly been told by the prime minister to go back to the drawing board on a plan to introduce new farm labour visas.

Scott Morrison told the Agriculture Minister David Littleproud in cabinet last week that the plan – aimed at addressing farming skill shortages – could not be delivered, The Australian reports.

Mr Littleproud was given three weeks to develop a fresh policy that would not threaten Australian jobs, open new opportunities for immigration rorts or concern regional partners.
