LONDON – England – Daniel Hannan MEP has responded to the BSE campaign claim that leaving the EU would cause public sector staff shortages.

 

Responding to claims by BSE [Britain Stronger in Europe] that leaving the EU would cause staff shortages in the public sector, Daniel Hannan MEP said:

 

‘The IN campaign are trying to distract from the out of control immigration system that we are locked into while we stay in the EU. If we Vote Leave we will be able to take back control of our borders and create a fairer immigration system that prioritises the skills that we need here in the UK and stops the open door policy which puts pressure on public services.’
