Migrants have cost the Exchequer £140billion since the mid-1990s – more than £22million a day – it was claimed yesterday. A new study starkly contradicts Left-wing claims that immigration helps to cut taxes. Think-tank MigrationWatch has responded to another study – given substantial coverage by the BBC last year – which purported to show that immigrants made a contribution of £25billion to the public purse between 2001 and 2011. How immigrants ‘have cost Britain £140bn since 1995’: Study contradicts claims immigration helps to cut taxes
Commenting, Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said :
“Our report finally disposes of the immigration lobby’s oft repeated claims that immigration reduces our tax burden. The total cost is high and increased dramatically between 1995 and 2011, providing no compensation for the overcrowding of this island which we are experiencing, largely as a result of immigration.”Immigrants have cost the tax payer over £140 billion since 1995
