Commenting on today’s net migration figures, Frank Field MP and Nicholas Soames MP, co-chairmen of the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration said:


‘These new figures illustrate the difficulty of getting immigration down as the British public most certainly want. They also confirm the need for a target as a focus for government policy. Without the target, net migration today would have been much higher. However, no useful target can be achieved without a major increase in resources devoted to defending our borders.”
