Following the speech made this morning by the Labour Party Leader, Ed Miliband, Sir Andrew Green said:
"The steps which Ed Miliband outlined to promote integration are perfectly sensible but there was a glaring gap in his speech - namely his failure to say anything significant about limiting the scale of future immigration. Apparently, he is only going to "look at the whole system". Does he seriously think that we can integrate three million migrants into our community every ten years? Until Labour undertake to place limits on immigration they will not get a hearing from the British public."
Note to editors: The 2011 census reported that 3.8 million people born abroad and resident in the UK arrived into England and Wales in the last ten years.
