Diane Abbott responds to latest immigration data
22 Feb 2018Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the latest immigration data, said: “The Government’s failed net migration target continues to be breached. Net migration is still more than double the target, which has never once been met.
“At the same time, the Home Office is turning away qualified doctors despite the recruitment shortage in the NHS. This deficit hurts us all and highlights the immigration mess the Government has created.
“Labour in government will prioritise jobs, growth and prosperity. We offer the fair and reasonable management of migration and we put these priorities before bogus immigration targets.”
