MP for Gainsborough Edward Leigh has welcomed new steps set out by Prime Minister David Cameron in recent weeks.

Mr Leigh claims that the changes will ‘ensure we have an immigration system that favours people who work hard and want to get on in life’.

Mr Leigh said: “Many people in Lincolnshire are concerned about immigration. Conservatives in Government have implemented a comprehensive reform of our immigration system to make it stronger and more selective. These reforms have seen net immigration cut by a third since the general election.”

“I welcome the new steps which the Prime Minister has set out to ensure that everyone who comes here pays their way and is able to give something back. This will stop the ‘something for nothing’ culture.”
