Commenting on findings published today by Migration Watch UK on housing in London, Frank Field MP and Sir Nicholas Soames MP, Co-Chairmen of the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration, said:

‘Just as the Scottish referendum has blown open the British constitution, so has this latest report on housing needs blown open the debate on immigration. The report shows London’s housing stock is creaking. Waiting lists for social housing have doubled since 2000.’
