Event description

Description

As the 2015 General Election looms, Labour is still trying to find the best way to talk to voters about immigration. What is Labour’s vision of the role migration plays in modern Britain and how does it fit with the range of voters’ concerns? What are the key messages that will win the support both of liberal public opinion and of those who are concerned about the impacts of migration in their communities? Finally how does the party address the increasingly important constituency of voters from migrant backgrounds? This meeting will debate how, amid the widespread challenges over the coming period, Labour can forge a positive way forward on immigration that is both progressive in outlook and mainstream in its appeal.
Speakers:
Paul Blomfield MP, Chair
Yvette Cooper MP, Shadow Home Secretary
Tim Finch – IPPR
Margaret Burton – Ernst & Young
Don Flynn – Migrants’ Rights Network
