Migration Watch UK Press Comment on Yvette Cooper's Immigration Speech

April 10, 2014

Commenting on Yvette Cooper’s speech, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

“This speech is elegant camouflage for the absence of any real policy on the central issue of scale. Net foreign immigration under the last Labour government totalled nearly four million, two thirds from outside the European Union. Yvette Cooper now says she wants to see a lower level of migration but cannot say what that level is and won't set a target. Until Labour set a clear objective for their immigration policy the public will simply not believe them.”
