Melanie McDonagh's article ("Bless you, Vicar, for showing our curbs on immigration are a joke", Comment, last week) hit a row of nails on the head and with a touch of sardonic humour. The reality is that of the migrants who come from outside the European Union, only a quarter come here to work. Some will be vital for business. Others will just be cheaper to employ. All will be reducing the incentive for employers to train British workers. The City's voice must be heard, but not exclusively. Immigration has been running out of control, so all sectors should be reined in.
