New data shows HMG’s net migration target misconceived

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, in response to the delayed quarterly migration statistics, said:

“As this data shows, the Government’s net migration target is utterly misconceived. It has never been met and the Government’s most recent efforts to meet it led to the Windrush scandal, and deporting our own citizens. Like the ‘hostile environment’, it’s clear to almost everyone except Theresa May that the net migration target should go.”
