Priti Patel: Conservatives will reduce overall immigration

"That's let people down", he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

Jeremy Corbyn has refused to say if he wants the number of immigrants coming to the United Kingdom to rise or fall.

Mr Corbyn added: "We have to be realistic that in this country we have 40,000 nurse vacancies, we have a great shortage of doctors, we have shortages of many skills, and they can not be met very quickly because we're not training enough people, so there's going to be immigration in the future".

Home Secretary Priti Patel said a Tory government would "reduce immigration overall" through adopting a points-based system.

"We will reduce immigration overall while being more open and flexible to the highly skilled people we need, such as scientists and doctors", she said in a statement released by the party on Wednesday (13).

She further added that such a thing can only happen if the conservatives are voted as the majority government in order to have the Brexit with a deal. However, the Conservatives are expected to back off from their promise of cutting the net migration (the net difference between the number of people coming to the United Kingdom and leaving it) after failing to meet it.

"Although we had a majority in coalition, the Liberal Democrats are not renowned for their desire to control immigration", he said.

In September's Labour party conference in Brighton, its members supported a motion defending the right of European Union migrants to live and work in the United Kingdom and voted that the party must oppose any immigration system that is based on quotas, caps, targets or personal incomes, along with looking to extend migrant rights.

Below Corbyn's Labour, immigration would surge and build huge strain on faculties and our NHS.

Kentucky has the highest lung cancer rates in the nation
Kentucky ranks 20th in the nation (average) at 20.2%. Nationally, 20.6 percent of cases underwent surgery. The national lung cancer incidence rate is 59.6.

Mr Johnson, campaigning in Somerset, said a points-based system would enable the Government to control the numbers of workers entering the country without skills or jobs.

Labour, meanwhile, was forced to forced to deny the party was split over immigration after one of Jeremy Corbyn's key trade union allies rejected calls to extend free movement of labour.

"It's wrong in my view to have any greater free movement of labour unless you get stricter labour market regulation".

His comments ahead of the party's Clause V meeting at the weekend to finalise the manifesto angered some activists who wanted to see it honour the conference motion.

Laura Pidcock, the shadow secretary of state for employment rights, refused to be drawn on the issue in a string of broadcast interviews today. "Actually those employers that seek to undermine those national agreements are to blame for the exploitation".

However, it is unknown as to whether this commitment will form part of party policy in this year's election manifesto.

Undertaken by ComRes for British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, with less than a month to go until polling day the polling data suggests 43 per cent of voters in the so-called "DE" social groups - working class and unemployed - would vote for the Conservative Party.

But Labour branded it the most unique from the Tory Occasion's "put-imagine learn department".

The Conservative line here is based on the idea that Labour plan to extend freedom of movement rights to non-EU citizens.
