Ann spot-on to de­mand firm im­mi­gra­tion regime

Daily Express - - LETTERS BEACHCOMBE­R -

AT last some com­mon sense re­gard­ing im­mi­gra­tion. Ann Wid­de­combe is spot-on with her ar­ti­cle (“For­get words, we need action on im­mi­gra­tion”, Oc­to­ber 29).

I was en­cour­aged a few days ago when Im­mi­gra­tion Min­is­ter Phil Woolas ac­tu­ally talked sense about lim­it­ing the num­bers com­ing here but less than a day later he did the usual Labour U-turn.

We should limit the num­bers from out­side the EU. At the mo­ment our pub­lic ser­vices are stretched to the limit. We are now en­ter­ing re­ces­sion and can­not af­ford the nec­es­sary in­creases to the NHS, schools etc. With un­em­ploy­ment ris­ing there will not be enough jobs for the peo­ple who are al­ready here, let alone new­com­ers, so every­one will suf­fer.
