Government’s own, new survey shows 79% of people want immigration cut
Commenting on the release today by the Office of National Statistics of data on migration, the Co-Chairmen of the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration, Frank Field MP and Nicholas Soames MP, said: “The fall in net migration may well be temporary – as in previous recessions – but even at the present level of immigration, we are still on target for the UK’s population to exceed 70 million within 25 years. There are no laurels to rest on. The need for firm measures on immigration is unchanged. The public clearly understand this. The Government’s own survey, released today, shows 79 per cent of people want immigration reduced.
