Quote of the day 28th August 2015

"Current flows of people across Europe are on a scale we haven't seen since the end of World War Two. This is not sustainable and risks the future economic development of other EU member states."

(James Brokenshire, immigration minister, on the high levels of net migration announced yesterday.)

He added that the Government had slashed student fraud, struck off nearly 900 bogus colleges and toughened access to welfare and housing.

"But with nearly 100,000 non-EU students remaining in the UK at the end of their courses and British business still overly reliant on foreign workers in a number of sectors, there is much more to do," the minister said.

"That's why our new Immigration Bill will further address illegal working, the pull factors that draw migrants to Britain and the availability of public services which help them to remain here unlawfully."
