News | Community

Further to his recent adjournment debate on EU migrants in Peterborough, local MP Stewart Jackson today highlights further figures that show the immense pressure being put upon local services by recent immigration.

Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request show that there was a 50% increase in translation costs between 2003-04 and 2006-07 within the North and South Peterborough Primary Care Trusts (from £202,694 in 03/04 to £305,289 in 06/07).

The forecast for 2007-08 (for the new Peterborough PCT) shows another massive leap up to £373,980.

Stewart commented: “These figures just add more weigh to the case that Peterborough desperately needs more money to cope with the recent massive influx of EU migrants.

“It is time Government started listening, recognised the clear evidence available and committed the necessary funding to alleviate this problem.

Stewart Jackson was elected in May 2005 to represent the Peterborough constituency in the House of Commons. To find out more about him, his views and activities, visit his website at www.stewartjackson.org.uk
