Responding to UKIP leader Nigel Farage’s comments about the education of immigrants’ children, Bishop Patrick Lynch, Chair of the Bishops’ Conference Office for Migration Policy, said:

“The UK has a long, proud and humane tradition of responding to the needs of immigrants’ children.

“It is proven that education is a key element in integrating diverse communities. I recognise that in some places there are strains on resource but as a society we need to respond to this need rather than scapegoating any one group.

“I am appalled by any suggestion of discriminating against immigrants.”
