British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives said on Sunday they were unlikely to keep a promise to reduce net migration to “tens of thousands”, possibly damaging their reelection chances next year. Immigration has shot to the top of voter concerns before a 2015 national election after the UK Independence Party (UKIP), which wants to limit inflows and leave the EU, won European elections in Britain in May and later secured two seats in the British parliament. 

Instead, it rose to 243,000 in the year to March 2014 and new data due this week is expected to show the numbers getting higher, not lower.
