The Labour party have announced a new immigration policy which they say will reduce the pressure on our cities, while ensuring we get the skilled workers our country needs. The policy will target mainly students in low-level education courses who attempt to remain in New Zealand following their study. Labour says the policy will see net migration decrease to 20,000-30,000 per year in what they are labeling a breather on immigration. Reporter Sam Smith spoke to Labour leader Andrew Little about the new policy and got reaction from political commentator Bryce Edwards.
