ACT proposes free movement with Britain, Australia, and Canada
Britain’s revision of immigration settings is a chance to propose a free movement zone, says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“We can’t stand by and let the traditional Kiwi OE be put at risk,” says Mr Seymour.
“Successful nations like Britain and New Zealand shouldn’t be putting up walls and shutting off from each other when it’s the exchange of ideas that has made our nations so prosperous.
“Brexit provides new options as Britain pivots away from European immigration. Let’s approach Britain with a proposal for a two-way free movement agreement, similar to what we have with Australia.
“In the long term, we could even negotiate a broader free movement zone for citizens of Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Canada – all English-speaking, industrialised Commonwealth nations. ‘CANZUK’.
“We already have strong connections with these nations through family, friendship, and business. Let’s break down the walls and make the great OE even greater.”
