Migration Watch UK press comment on today's ONS Labour Market Statistics


November 16, 2016

Commenting, Lord Green of Deddington, Chairman of Migration Watch UK said:

This is yet another large increase in the labour force driven by an increase in foreign workers. That increase amounts to just over a million in three years. In the last year, just over half came from the EU, including 150,000 from Eastern Europe. This continuing influx helps explain why the British people voted for Brexit and is a sharp reminder that the forthcoming negotiations must get these numbers down.
