United Kingdom Shadow Minister wants students to be removed from immigration figures
The UK's shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, has called on the Coalition government to immediately remove students from the official migration statistics. Ms Cooper said that including all migrants in the immigration statistics was 'deeply damaging to our economy'.
During a wide-ranging speech on immigration at the Institute for Public Policy Research, a left-leaning London think tank, Ms Cooper said that the current government's treatment of the immigration figures is not in Britain's interests.
She said 'The Government treats all legal immigration in the same way – be it university students or low skilled migrant workers, refugees or family members – as something bad for Britain that should be reduced'.
