The OBR says:

“This upward revision reflects evidence of sustained strength in inward migration since the post-Brexit migration regime was introduced… It also reflects discussions with the Home Office’s Migration Advisory Committee over what levels of net migration for the next several years might be consistent with the current migration regime”

It comes as the public is increasingly sceptical of immigration levels and the Government’s handling of Channel crossings. Guido remembers when the Conservatives were promising that “overall numbers will come down”…
