Office of National Statistics under fire for publishing ‘sinister’ figures on immigration

The immigration minister revealed that he had tried to prevent the organisation publishing the data and accused it of 'playing politics'.

It revealed that the number of foreign workers increased by 175,000 to 2.4million last year while the number of British fell by 234,000 to 27million.Labour sources suggested the timing of the release was a political act designed to embarrass Gordon Brown over his controversial 'British jobs for British workers' slogan.
