Home Affairs to front Migration Committee

Parliament of Australia 2 mins read

Department of Home Affairs boss, Mr Michael Pezzullo AO, will front the Joint Standing Committee on Migration on Wednesday 14 June 2023 to provide evidence to the committee’s Migration, Pathway to Nation Building inquiry.

This will be the seventh public hearing for the inquiry and the first time the Department appears.

Committee Chair, Maria Vamvakinou MP, said ‘over the course of the inquiry, the committee has heard from all sorts of people and organisations on what’s wrong with the current migration system and how it could be improved.’

‘This hearing will be the perfect opportunity for the committee to get answers on the current operation of the migration system from those directly responsible for administering it. The hearing is particularly timely given the recent completion of the Parkinson Review, the announcement of the Government’s proposed Migration Strategy, and the ongoing Multicultural Framework Review. The committee will be very interested to hear about the outcomes of these initiatives and how the Department will implement associated reforms.’

‘The committee has already heard from a whole range of sectors, all united in the view that migration remains crucial to Australia’s national interest. So it is vital that we have a migration system that is fit-for-purpose, backed by evidence and research, and is beneficial to Australia’s society, culture and economy, as well as to migrants themselves’, Ms Vamvakinou said.

The full hearing program is available on the Committee website.
