19 Aug Travel pact with UK, New Zealand, Canada
Greg Brown – The Australian – Wednesday 19 August 2020
EXCLUSIVE Liberal senator James Paterson has called for Australia to work towards striking a freedom of movement agreement with Britain, New Zealand and Canada, making it easier for citizens in each commonwealth nation to live and work abroad.
In an essay for neoliberal think tank Adam Smith Institute, Senator Paterson wrote that the post-Brexit trade deal between Canberra and London had the “opportunity to lay the foundations for deeper co-operation between Australia, the UK and other like-minded countries”. He wrote that the long-term goal should be a free trade and movement deal between Australia, Britain, New Zealand and Canada.
