HOME Af­fairs Min­is­ter Peter Dut­ton has or­dered his depart­ment to look at bring­ing per­se­cuted white South African farm­ers to Aus­tralia on hu­man­i­tar­ian visas.

Speak­ing to Mi­randa Devine on her Daily Tele­graph ra­dio pro­gram yes­ter­day, Mr Dut­ton said the pa­per’s sto­ries on the plight of the farm­ers had prompted him to act.

“I’ve asked my depart­ment to look at op­tions and ways in which we can pro­vide some as­sis­tance be­cause I do think on the in­for­ma­tion I’ve seen, peo­ple do need help,’’ he said.
