At the end of last week, the Prime Minister, David Cameron insisted that the UK will be able to reduce net immigration to below 100,000 per year by the next general election in twelve months time.
When coming to power in 2010, the Prime Minister announced that he would cut net immigration by the next general election. However, figures at the beginning of the month suggesting that last year saw the highest number of migrants come to the UK since 2008, and additional figures revealing that 2.7 million foreign nationals are working within the UK.
Yet, despite the recent figures, David Cameron has revealed he is still confident that net immigration can fall below 100,000 per year, although he has admitted that despite net migration being cut by a fifth since the government came to power, immigration has not come down as much as he would have liked.
