Jeremy Corbyn Defends EU Freedom of Movement and Immigration


Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, has strongly defended immigration in his address to the party’s annual conference today.

Corbyn said:

“A Labour government will not offer false promises on immigration as the Tories have done. We will not sow division by fanning the flames of fear. We will tackle the real issues of immigration instead whatever the eventual outcome of the Brexit negotiations and make the changes that are needed”.

He added:

“Labour will reinstate the migrant impact fund, and give extra support to areas of high migration using the visa levy for its intended purpose. And we will add a citizenship application fee levy to boost the fund. That is the Labour way to tackle social tension investment and assistance, not racism and division”.
