Almost nine out of ten new jobs created since the Labour party came to power in 1997 have gone to migrant workers, new figures have revealed.
According to data from the Office for National Statistics, out of the 1.7 million employment positions established in the last decade, 1.5 million have gone to jobseekers born outside of the UK.
This means 85 per cent of successful job candidates are migrant workers.
A Labour MP, Frank Field, discovered the data and is calling for further immigration restrictions.
"What the government needs to do is face up to the fact that we need to restrict the movement of labour from eastern Europe," he said.
"We had the ability to do that, but now we would need to ask the European Commission for permission."
The government recently announced that foreign medical students will no longer be able to apply for NHS training posts, following fears there would not be enough positions available for UK junior doctors.
