People worry about immigration if they have little contact with migrants
Nicholas WattPeople are more likely to be concerned about immigration if they have little contact with migrants, according to a new poll to be released on Monday.
The Survation poll for Sky News found that 71% of those who did not know any immigrants supported strong action to crackdown on immigration, compared with 58% of those who say they know immigrants well.
The poll found that 67% of those questioned do not believe that coalition plans to reduce net migration from non-EU countries goes far enough. The poll of 1,508 adults also found that 74% are concerned about the prospect of Romanians and Bulgarians being given complete EU rights to work in Britain when transitional controls are lifted in January.
