Public opposed to reducing international student numbers - poll

Public opposed to reducing international student numbers - poll
- The most recent net migration statistics covering the year to September 2016 put long-term student immigration at 134,000, down 23%.
Amid a Cabinet split over whether international students should be counted in the official migration statistics, the survey found only a quarter of people thought of them as immigrants.
Boris Johnson and Liam Fox are among those to oppose including those coming for education from the figures, while Philip Hammond said the recording system should reflect “public perception”.
But Downing Street has ruled out a change in the way they are recorded, and Amber Rudd has suggested she wants to reduce the number of foreign students as part of efforts to cut immigration.
