Statement by the Co-Chairmen of the Cross-Party Group on Balanced Migration, Frank Field MP and Nicholas Soames MP, regarding the Prime Minister’s podcast on immigration:

“The Prime Minister’s statement is welcome but none of it will get net immigration down to 40,000 which is what is necessary to stop the population crashing through 70 million.”
