Chris Bryant MP, Labour’s Shadow Immigration Minister, responding to the Mayor of London’s comments on the Government’s immigration policy, said:
“The Prime Minister’s immigration policy is nothing short of a complete shambles. The Director-General of the CBI has said it is putting people off coming to the UK, and even the Tory Mayor of London realises that it is having a dreadful effect on the UK’s ability to compete.
“Nearly three years into this Government, the Home Secretary is failing on all fronts – the UKBA and Border Force have spiralled toward chaos and attempted to hide it from MPs, students are being discouraged from studying here, potentially costing us billions and the Home Secretary still has over a hundred thousand to cut in order to reach her own net migration target. When will she get a grip of her own policies?”
