http://www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast Prime Minister Julia Gillard has moved quickly to ease community concerns about one issue in particular, that is Australia's growing population. She's rejected Kevin Rudd's vision for a 'Big Australia', saying she's against setting arbitrary targets such as Treasury's recent projection of 36 million people by 2050. The PM is directing her comments to marginal voters in outer suburban electorates by saying the people of Western Sydney, for example, would be asking where will all these new Australians be settled? Tony Abbott says the shift towards more sustainable population growth is in direct line with Coalition policy.
