The leader of the One Nation will ask the upper house on Monday to support a referendum, arguing that the country's roads and health system are squeezing under the weight of new migrants.

Its legislation would create a framework for a national referendum that would be held together with the next general election.
Voters would be asked: & # 39; Do you think the current immigration rate to Australia is too high? & # 39;
Head of government Senate Mathias Cormann does not rule out supporting her calls for a national vote, but said work was already underway to manage immigration levels.
& # 39; Of course we have already made a judgment in the most recent budget to lower the level of immigration, & # 39; he said to reporters.
& # 39; So we have made our own judgment on these matters, but I have not seen the details of what Pauline Hanson suggests. & # 39;
