Question

Just in reaction to what you said, are you aware that it is the porous borders and unenforced regulations concerning immigration that have made Britain a burgeoning destination for trafficked people, as I revealed recently in a report that I produced, Shadow City, which highlighted the problem of trafficked people in the United Kingdom?

Answer for Mayor's Oral Update (Supplementary) [2]

Yes, I do, and I thank you and congratulate you on your work and on your report.  I do think it is absolutely vital.  I go back in a pedantic way to this distinction between legal and illegal immigration.  It is vital that we do make that distinction.  I am probably about the only politician I know of at the moment who is actually willing to stand up and say that he is pro-immigration.  I do not hear anybody else saying it.  You?
