    Default Migrants to be tested on integration?

    Call to test migrants on their ability to integrate
    7:33AM Thursday August 02, 2007

    New Zealand First is calling for the Government to follow Australia's lead and introduce "integration testing" for new would-be migrants.

    The Australian government yesterday announced that migrants seeking to live permanently in Australia would be assessed on their capacity to integrate into Australia's way of life.

    Factors taken into account would include an applicant's adaptability and resourcefulness, their knowledge of Australia, their expectations about living in Australia, their attitude towards learning English and their English language skills.

    NZ First deputy leader Peter Brown said New Zealand should tighten its own criteria.
