A healthy and hearty debate is clearly welcome
In a recent column on the second reading of the Immigration Bill, (MP Sir John) Mr Hayes claims that three quarters of the UK population say they want to see immigration reduced. He appears to be quoting a poll taken by YouGov in 2015.
It’s worth updating him on the changing sentiment since that date. Data published by The Migration Observatory at The University of Oxford suggests the number of people who believe this is now 44%, with 39% saying the level should stay about the same.
