Migrationwatch issued today January, 7 a commentary on the Item Club "Special report on migration and the UK economy" released on 18 January, 2008.

Said chairman Sir Andrew Green: 'This report is very far from an objective assessment of the issue from a body which openly favours "open doors to economic migrants", despite the highest levels of immigration in our history. This is despite some of the findings in their own report - particularly the small or even negative impact on GDP per head and the increase of 100,000 in youth unemployment since 2004. As usual, they completely ignore the impact on housing, schools, hospitals and the strains on community cohesion which should surely be included in the balance sheet.'
