A parliamentary Senate committee last week made four recommendations on the government’s planned citizenship changes. The report can be accessed here.
The four recommendations are:
- The senate committee recommended that English language requirements should not be so high.
- The committee also suggested that Australian permanent residents, who were granted visas before the April 20th, should be allowed to apply for citizenship under old rules
- It also called for the government to reconsider its plan to ban applications for two years if the applicant failed the citizenship test thrice.
- And finally, to pass the bill.
