Commenting on Gordon Brown's immigration speech, Chris Huhne said:

"Labour's shambolic mismanagement has shattered public confidence in the immigration system and undermined this country's historically liberal attitude towards immigration.

"We can only persuade people of the enormous benefits of immigration if we have a system that is firm but fair.

"This means securing our borders by reintroducing exit checks, planning properly for new migrants and making sure they move to where they are most needed."
