Responding to the ONS Migration Statistics Quarterly Report November 2017, Sir Gerald Howarth, Board Member of Leave Means Leave said: 
 
“These statistics suggest that the vote to Leave the EU has already played an extremely important role in reducing net migration from the EU. This reduction has happened even before a post-Brexit EU migration policy has been implemented. 
 
“While this is a step in the right direction, the numbers are still far too high and this must be addressed as soon as Britain leaves the EU in March 2019. 
 
“The Government should adopt a British work permit system to cut net migration to sustainable levels last seen in the mid-1990s.”
