Subject: RE: BS: UK immigration too high?
Don T, who told you the system was in place to control further immigration?
Was it Phil Woolas, the immigration minister?
He did say "Today's projections show that population growth is starting to slow down, the impacts of the radical reforms we have made to the immigration system over the last two years are working," he said.

However, Guy Goodwin, ONS director of population statistics, said the change was due to a change in data analysis, not Government policy. "I would not call it a significant slowing up in any way," he said.
