Lamb – OBR figures show immigration is good for the British economy

Lower immigration will cost Britain £16bn in extra borrowing, the Officer for Budget Responsibility has found in its analysis for the Autumn Statement.

Commenting, Norman Lamb MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“The OBR has set out in black and white the facts that Leavers can’t bring themselves to hear – immigration is good for our economy, and hard Brexit will make our country worse off.

“This just underlines the fact that Britain after Brexit must remain open to talent from around the world, and stay an integral member of the Single Market.”
