Labour Hopes to Wreck Immigration Bill

The Labour Party will attempt to wreck the Government’s Immigration Bill today, as it believes the law “panders to prejudice”.

Shadow Home Secretary, Andy Burnham, warns that parts of the legislation would “make Britain a hostile and unwelcoming country”1.

The bill will see landlords obliged to check the immigration status of all new tenants.

Labour MPs will vote for a wrecking amendment, but it is thought that the bill will definitely be passed.
