Immigration leads to building on green belt

Have your say

We were promised the green-belt would be protected, only to find it is under threat as we need more housing.

Now planning minister Nick Boles wants new development to be allowed on national parks. The reason, of course, is because of years of mass immigration, which has not only increased the demand for housing, but also placed an extra burden on schools, the NHS, water and energy and much more.

Until this Conservative-led coalition government takes control of immigration (which as long as we remain members of the EU they can’t) the demand will keep increasing until our green and pleasant land is concreted over.

Like Labour before them, they cannot be trusted to govern our country.
