- MigrationWatch: new focus on population growth
MigrationWatch today continued their attempt to shift the focus of debate on migration away from people movement and towards population, as has previously been documented on Left Foot Forward. The press release for a new report ¿ carried out by MigrationWatch for Balanced Migration, a cross-party group of MPs ¿ suggested that rising numbers of births to immigrant parents will contribute to increased demand for primary school places, costing the British taxpayer £1 billion in building costs for new schools.
- Migrant Exodus: The impact on the UK
How can we attract skilled migrants to help pull the economy out of recession while not pushing more British workers onto the lengthening dole queues? That is the difficult question that Ministers and advisers are wrestling with at present. A populist position would be to slam the door shut on newcomers and keep all the jobs for ourselves. With an election looming, such a stance must be tempting for Ministers who know that tough talk on immigration often plays better with many voters than smart policies. But having significantly strengthened the control and management of migration in recent years, the government must avoid steps that though electorally popular are economically counter-productive.

Multi Agency Data Exchange
The Multi-Agency Data Exchange (MADE) was set up in 2001 as a data warehousing project for community safety practictioners in Lancashire.
Lancashire MADE Public provides ward profiles containing data supplied by the local authorities, police, fire and ambulance services in both tablular and mapped form. The intention behind providing this data is to ensure that people within Lancashire can make a more informed decision about community safety issues in their neighbourhood.
In addition, MADE partners can log onto the restricted access MADE website which houses more detailed information, including a Diversity Report used for monitoring and analysing data relevant to community cohesion.
The MADE project team are tasked by senior officers from the key organisations involved in the partnership and funded by local authorities (Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool unitary authorities and the 12 district councils), Lancashire Constabulary, the Primary Care Trust and Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service.
If you require more information about MADE, then please contact the project team.
