Early day motion 1153

Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House is intensely relaxed about people coming to this country to study and work and bringing necessary skills, as long as they pay their taxes and pay their way; notes that Government ministers are once more bitterly at odds over immigration; further notes that while the number of immigrants arriving from outside the EU has fallen, those arriving from within the EU has increased by 60,000 to 209,000; points out that Government ministers' commitment to cutting net migration to below 100,000 by next year is impossible without leaving the EU; believes that the Immigration Minister James Brokenshire's claim that the number of arrivals from the EU is too high is simply a naked attempt to hold on to Tory voters who are likely to vote for UKIP in the May elections; and calls on all parties and members to stop using immigration as a political football.
