Mass migration ‘is damaging Britain’: Leaked jobs report reveals civil servants’ concern at EU influx
Mass migration from Europe is having a ‘disproportionate’ impact on the UK and damaging society, a government analysis says
- Document reveals EU citizens are biggest winners in British jobs market
- Graduates from Eastern EU taking low-skilled jobs, topped up by benefits
- It’s damaging ‘social policy objectives’ of getting low-skilled Brits into work
Mass migration from Europe is having a ‘disproportionate’ impact on the UK and damaging society, a government analysis says.
The leaked Whitehall document reveals that EU citizens are overwhelmingly the biggest winners in the British jobs market, responsible for 75 per cent of the growth in employment.
Graduates from Eastern Europe are taking low-skilled jobs, topped up by ‘generous in-work benefits, without having contributed, from Day One’.
This is damaging the ‘social policy objectives’ of getting lower-skilled British citizens into work, according to the Department for Work and Pensions analysis.
It says ‘unprecedented’ levels of migration from the EU are the main force behind the equivalent of a ‘new Coventry’ being added to Britain’s population every year.
Separately, writing in today’s Mail, ex-work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith warns of a fresh ‘stampede’ of EU workers if Britain does not vote to leave in the June 23 referendum.
The leaked paper, ‘EU & International Affairs in DWP’, is marked ‘sensitive’. It dates from March 24.
The report reads: ‘Net migration continues to rise at record levels and is now 336,000.
‘The biggest contributor is the increase in the long-term migration of EU citizens. This is equivalent to adding a new Coventry to the UK every year.
‘Newly arriving EEA [European Economic Area] nationals have a disproportionate impact on the UK. Numbers in employment in the UK grew by nearly 450,000 in the last year. EEA nationals secured about three quarters of that growth in employment, compared to 25 per cent for UK nationals.’
