A subsequent and further response by the MPs Frank Field and Nicholas Soames to the Financial Times editorial ‘How to manage immigration flows’ (and no doubt our attempt to show how ill- founded some of the comments were in our letter ) can be found here.
We’ll be taking up, and challenging some of the thinking around this in the next edition of the excellent JCWI Bulletin. It’s due out shortly – this one’s an election special. We’re joined by the immigration minister, Phil Woolas, Damian Green and Chris Huhne who let us know what might lie store for us. You can get a copy by becoming a JCWI member. We highly recommend it!
