Annual budgets, and their lead up, are an opportunity for genuine dialogue between government and concerned stakeholders across a range of sectors. Communities engaging with governments can really help in setting budget priorities which hopefully help all in society to flourish. It is in this spirit that a range of Catholic social service personnel gathered yesterday to listen to Parliamentary Treasury Secretary, Daniel Mulino MP, share his insights into the 2017 State Budget.
The Department of Immigration and Border Control is currently undertaking its annual review of the Humanitarian Programme, to consider the size and composition of intakes of refugees under the Programme.
Catholic Social Services with several member agencies have lodged a Submission to the Review, as has member organisation, Jesuit Social Services. Three Members of Parliament, Tim Watts MP, Labor, Andrew Broad MP, Nationals and Russell Broadbent MP, Liberal have called upon the government to increase community sponsorship of refugees within the Programme.
Member organisation Edmund Rice Centre has released a statement denouncing the government's latest decision to set a timeline on the lodgement for protection for refugees and people seeking asylum. In its statement, the ERC wrote "Peter Dutton has launched yet another unfair and cruel attack on refugees and people seeking asylum".
