More embarrassment: A watchdog has ordered an inquiry into immigration figures cited by Gordon Brown

In a highly embarrassing development the independent statistics watchdog, Sir Michael Scholar, has ordered an inquiry into the use of figures supposedly showing that Labour’s new points-based system has reduced the level of immigration.

Mr Brown has also been forced to admit that Labour has not banned low-skilled chefs and care assistants entering the country from abroad, as he has repeatedly claimed during the campaign.

The revelations came as a new study revealed that more than a one million extra immigrants are set to enter Britain over the coming five years.
