Jeremy Corbyn is refusing to “fan the flames of fear” over immigration despite calls from some Labour MPs to pledge a cut in numbers of incomers to the UK.

The Labour leader will use his conference speech to call for moves to stop migrants’ pay undercutting British wages, rather than commit to reducing immigration overall.

Just hours after former Shadow Cabinet minister Rachel Reeves warned that Britain could ‘explode’ into riots if migration wasn’t curbed by Brexit, Corbyn will instead say he will not ‘sow division’ or make ‘false promises’ over the issue.
