Afzal Khan responds to MAC report on the Impact of international students in the UK

Afzal Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Immigration Minister, commenting on the publication of Migration Advisory Committee report on the Impact of international students in the UK, said:

“International students generate over £25 billion for our economy. We value their contribution to our culture, society, ‘soft power’ abroad, not to mention the fact that they subsidise university fees for UK students.

“The Government must scrap the wrongheaded net migration target. The Migration Advisory Committee is right to say that it is entirely a political device, which the Tory party is using for their own party political ends, to the detriment of the country’s best interests.”
