Migration: Tories admit they risk being WIPED OUT at next election and demand urgent plan: ‘It’s do or die!’

A group of Conservative MPs has admitted that the party is facing an “existential” threat at the next election, demanding the Government publish a plan to tackle migration today.

This came after the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published the net migration figures for the UK this morning.


Net migration reached 672,000, an increase of 65,000. This exceeds last year’s figures, which reached a record level of 606,000.

The Conservative Party under David Cameron was elected in 2010 on a manifesto pledge to bring net migration down to below 100,000.

In a statement published after the figures were released, the New Conservative Group of MPs said: “At the last election, every Conservative MP was elected on a solemn promise to reduce net migration, which in 2019 stood at 229,000 per year.

“Since then, in poll after poll, the public has made clear that they are prepared to support tough measures to clamp down on overall migration numbers: legal and illegal”.

The group accused the Government of “largely ignoring” measures they have proposed, saying: “Many on our benches have warned that we were failing to make adequate progress on our promise”.
