In the latest survey by Ipsos MORI for IMIX, more Britons believe migration has had a positive impact on Britain (47%) than a negative effect (29%). Those who voted to remain in the EU in 2016 are significantly less likely to believe migration has a negative impact on Britain. Only 12% of remainers think so, compared to almost of (47%) of leave voters. However, while remainers’ views have stayed broadly stable since October 2016, leavers have become less negative (six percentage point down from 53%). Still, over half of Britons (54%) say they want to see the number of immigrants coming to Britain reduced. Three in ten would like to see numbers stay the same while only 9% want an increase. However, there has been a continuing decrease in the level of disagreement over the last four years. In June 2015, two-thirds (66%) of respondents wanted to see a reduction in the number of immigrants coming to Britain, 12 percentage points higher than it is today. While a majority want to see a reduction in the overall numbers of immigrants, when asked about specific occupations the public’s opinion is more nuanced. In fact, almost half say they want to see an increase in the number of nurses (49%) and doctors (47%) coming to the UK from the European Union after Britain leaves– consistent with findings from December 2018. However, compared to six months ago more people want to see an increase in care home workers (32% vs 28%) and academics (29% vs 22%). The effects of immigration continue to split opinion. While 30% believe immigration is good for the standard of living for people already living in Britain, 36% disagree. Furthermore, two-thirds (67%) believe that migration puts pressure on public services and housing. People are also divided over the integration of cultures. Half of Britons (49%) agree that immigration enriches the UK culture and makes it a more interesting place to live, however six in ten (61%) believe that too often, migrants don’t integrate or follow British customs. Opinion is also split on how Brexit will impact immigration. A quarter (26%) of Britons believe the number of immigrants entering the UK illegally from other EU countries will increase while one in five (21%) believe it will decrease. A third (34%) believe it will stay the same. Dissatisfaction with the government’s response to immigration has remained the same since Boris Johnson entered No. 10. In December 2018, 57% felt dissatisfied with how Theresa May’s government was dealing with immigration, while 59% are dissatisfied with Boris Johnson’s actions so far.
