Are EU Ready for the Referendum? Part 2: Immigration

In my previous blog post I focussed on trade with the EU. This time I shall look at another issue for voters, the issue of immigration. It wasn’t that long ago when Mr David Cameron promised that he would bring down net migration to ‘the tens of thousands’. According to the Office of National Statistics, net migration stood at 323,000 for the year between September 2014 and September 2015. This may be seen as a large number, and could justify why immigration remains one of the main concerns of British voters ahead of the referendum.
