In the margins of the EU-India trade deal to be signed in December is a clause that demands that Britain open up its doors to increased Indian immigration.
UKIP leading spokesman Nigel Farage
said: "This is the first significant step towards a single European immigration policy.
"The fact that the Government already admits that it has no influence over EU immigration is well known. Now we see that the EU has the ability of tell the world ‘We are opening Britain to you, whatever London might say’ destroys this government’s credibility on immigration period” .
Not only that, he said, but this news has already been picked up across the sub-continent and is being presented to the Indian people as "trade deal may nullify UK migration cap" and "EU-India 'free trade agreement will allow flood of Indian skilled workers into Britain".
"Essentially the EU has just invited thousands of Indians to come to Britain. And what can the Coalition government do about this? Absolutely nothing. Its immigration policy is a shambles and it has lost control of our borders.
"How dare the Foreign Secretary boast about 'referendum locks' and 'sovereignty acts', he is a senior official of a parish council, nothing more," said Farage.
