The report by the UK National Audit Office this week highlighted a 250,000 shortfall of places in primary schools, which UKIP blames squarely on immigration and the impact upon local services.
UKIP Immigration spokesman Gerard Batten MEP said: “The pressure on local services is increasing and these figures highlight it in a worrying fashion.
“The increases are caused by both a spike in the birth rate and a large increase in migration. Indeed both are related with a large percentage of population growth due to children born to recent immigrants.Roblox Hack Free Robux
“The need to create a quarter of a million school places will put massive strain on local education budgets, particularly in London which accounts for 37% of the total demand.
“It is absolutely vital that we get a grip on the issue of immigration.”
UKIP ignore the fact that there has been a 100,000 increase in the birth rate over the last 10 years, of which immigrants are a small percentage.
There has been a net increase of almost 81,500 primary school places in the last two years, yet the Education Secretary, Michael Gove, will experience a “real strain” on school places, according to the National Audit Office.
Immigration remains high on the political agenda with Romania and Bulgaria set to gain full freedom of movement next year, something which UKIP would like to reverse by pulling out of the EU.
The Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean accused British MP’s of political point-scoring over fears that a large number of migrant workers from Romania and Bulgaria will arrive when restrictions on working in the UK are relaxed next year.
Mr Corlatean told Sky News’: “It is always very easy to win supplementary points, votes, electoral advantages using the already classic topic of migration.
“This is of course, from our perspective at least, fundamentally wrong.
“Romanians and Bulgarians are not immigrants”, he added, ”they are EU members exercising their rights, not criminals.”
