“There are over 1.2 million people who find themselves unemployed, why shouldn’t they be skilled up with the abilities wanted as a substitute of importing low cost labour? Productiveness by way of expertise and funding – not low cost labour.

“The extra we import the extra strain on housing. Then their households come over and much more strain is placed on housing and public providers.
