Chief Minister presumptive Stanhope has reclaimed the keys to the Chief Minister’s website.
[This is to the relief of all Canberra media, as the Government is now telling us about stuff that’s happening which is much easier than having to find it ourselves. The Liberals remain silent and useless, at least they’re consistent.]
Our returned Brave Leader has announced a one-off allocation of another 500 skilled migrant places.
- “Mr Stanhope said the additional 500 skilled migrant places will allow the ACT Government to immediately nominate potential skilled workers with occupations outside the official ‘skills in shortage lists’ used to qualify and sponsor skilled immigrants.
“I congratulate Senator Evans and the Commonwealth Government for their new, cooperative, approach to skilled migration”, Mr Stanhope said. “These changes are good news for Canberra business and indeed for the broader community in seeking to attract more skilled workers in areas such as health care.”
If you were wondering where extra promised health care workers were coming from this is it.
