That this House believes that, whilst visitors should be welcomed to our shores, immigration is a valid area of public policy and should be addressed calmly and honestly; notes that immigrants are generally decent and hard working people, but further believes that failure to openly address this issue damages race relations; further notes that net immigration far exceeds Government predictions, having reached a quarter of a million a year without allowing for unrecorded immigration from EU countries; further notes that this has added a million to the UK's population in the last few years and, unless checked, will increase the population to 70 million much earlier than the Government's estimate of 2028; believes that public finances, services, housing provision and infrastructure are under tremendous pressure from this rapid and unsustainable increase; notes also that one million additional EU immigrants have been employed in Britain over the last few years while the unemployment of British citizens continues to rise rapidly; and therefore calls on the Government to review its policies on EU immigration and, to quote the Prime Minister, `do whatever it takes', even if this means changing Britain's relationship with the EU.
