Immigration is important for Britain but it must be made to work fairly for all of us. Labour’s plans mean immigrants must work here for 2 years before they are eligible for benefits and can’t claim child benefit for children that aren’t here.
We will make work fair by stopping wages being undercut by banning agencies who only hire workers from overseas.
Labour will bring in 1,000 extra border staff along with new fingerprint checks to get a grip of our borders and tackle illegal immigration.
People who rely on public services have a right to expect that staff, like nurses and care workers, can speak English. Labour will make sure that all frontline public sector staff can speak English.
