Roy Beck Video: Updated Immigration by the Numbers

Meanwhile ...

Population boom inevitable, PM told
JULIA GILLARD's election pitch to avoid a "big Australia" is to be abandoned after a Treasury warning that strong future immigration is "probably inescapable"...

A senior Labor source said business groups had been pressuring the government to adopt a default position ''where the issue of specific targets is not addressed''.

"I believe the government has accepted the reality that it is not prepared to cut migration to the extent needed to significantly reduce population growth," the source said.
Victoria divided on pace of growth
HALF of Victoria's voters believe Melbourne's population is growing too fast - and only 1 per cent think the city should be growing more quickly.

With issues relating to population pressure dominating the state election campaign, a Nielsen poll taken for The Age has found 50 per cent of voters across Victoria want the capital city's growth pegged back.
