Cameron: Immigration Verdict Based on What I Read, Saw, Heard
David Cameron's first lenient verdict on the numbers of Bulgarians and Romanians arriving in the UK since the last work curbs were lifted have not been based on statistics.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron conceded on Monday that immigration levels from Romania and Bulgaria has been 'reasonable' since work restrictions were lifted at the start of the year.
Cameron told the BBC's Today program that his government would get net migration down to "responsible levels" by the end of the parliament, a subtle shift in language on the issue.
Speaking later at a business event in London, Cameron said he had not had access to any official or unofficial statistics and had based his comments on what he had "read, seen and heard" over the past few weeks.
The UK Independence Party criticised the remarks, saying they were based on "zero evidence".
