Immigration will settle down to manageable level "hopefully"

THE IRISH economy will still have a strong demand for immigrant labour after the current downturn, according to Minister of State for Integration Conor Lenihan.

It was also "incorrect" to say immigrant labour was "undercutting" Irish labour, he said yesterday at a function in Co Galway.

"The volume of people will now settle down, hopefully to a level that's more manageable."

"Hopefully," that's the kind of decisive leadership this country needs.
