UKIP Migration Spokesman Steven Woolfe has responded to Rachel Reeves' pledge to tackle immigration within the European Union. He said: “Ed Miliband’s Labour Party are twisting themselves into knots trying to be UKIP, while trying to attack UKIP at the same time. This new idea of theirs will somehow, magically have to circumvent the EU’s Lisbon Treaty, which the Labour Party keeps repeating its commitment to.
“UKIP’s position on this is very simple, and is the only honest policy out there. To control all issues surrounding migration, including benefits, Britain would have to leave the European Union. Anyone claiming anything otherwise is either willfully deceiving the British public, or startlingly unaware of Britain’s commitments so long as we are EU members.”
