The Prime Minister’s not averse to looking at a special levy on migrants to help pay for schools, healthcare and roads.
It’s been suggested by the New Zealand Initiative in a report looking at the impact of immigration on New Zealand.
Bill English said it’s an interesting idea but there’s got to be a very good reason for bringing in a new levy or tax.
There’d have to be a lot of discussion before the Government got to the point of considering it, cautioned English.
“But we certainly are committed to building the infrastructure that supports the growth in population, some of which comes from migration.”
