UK Immigration Policies in the 2015 General Election
With the UK general election under two months away, all the major political parties have been promoting their manifestos, this includes various election pledges. One of the hottest pre-election topics, alongside the NHS and housing crisis, is immigration.
Overall immigration to the UK has increased significantly since the end of the 1970s, and remains one of the most important issues for voters. This is despite a pledge by the Conservatives before the last General Election to reduce immigration to the "tens of thousands" per year. The reality of the situation is that as the UK is part of the EU, the UK cannot control immigration from within the EU.
