Balanced migration - in a nutshell

  • Balanced migration would seek to bring the numbers of immigrants into line with the number of emigrants.
  • The main change would be to control the number of non-EU citizens who are given the right to settle permanently in the UK.
slide10

What would NOT change

  • Free movement of people in the European Union
  • The acceptance of genuine asylum seekers
  • The admission of genuine foreign students
  • Genuine marriages
  • Employers ability to recruit key staff 
slide11

Benefits

  • Balances the need for a competitive economy and the costs of a rapidly growing population
  • Provides, as the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee recommended, a "reasoned target range for net immigration" to which immigration policies could be adjusted
  • Reduces pressure on the environment, schools, transport and the NHS
  • Encourages British industry and commerce to train British workers
  • Improves the prospects for integrating newcomers to our society
  • Reduces the drain of talented people from third world countries who need their skills more than we do.
