New UK government abandons migration pledge
New UK home and foreign affairs secretaries Amber Rudd and Boris Johnson have abandoned Tory promises to bring net immigration below 100,000 people a year. The government will instead aim to reduce migration to “sustainable levels”, Rudd said. Johnson added it was wrong to commit to numbers, because "one didn't want to disappoint people". Former PM David Cameron came under fire after net migration soared to 335,000 last year.
