Pure & utter nonsense from FG, fair play to rural independents for highlighting this. Country is turning into a leftie cesspit.

The correct answer is probably along the lines of

"We don't see our incoming numbers ever swelling to significant figures; therefore we do not want to discourage anyone thinking of coming here at this time.

Of course, we cannot foresee the future, so if that changes, then maybe this house will need to debate it. But for now, the bigger problem is Ukrainians being put off by a perceived cold welcome and staying somewhere that puts them at risk."

Fair enough interpretation of the issue, although in the medium to long term can see potential hazards expressed by Carol Nolan. Resource issue with a quick rise in population, access to healthcare,  proper housing, education etc. These are areas where we were struggling prior to the war. We should accept a percentage of Ukrainians based on our population & their access to key resources.
