Tesco have welcomed Chris Bryant's praise during his speech on immigration and the labour market, and stressed the "vast majority" of the people they recruited for their Dagenham store are British and live locally.
We’re pleased that Mr Bryant has recognised that Tesco is a good employer and an important source of jobs in Britain.
We worked incredibly hard to recruit people from the local area in Dagenham and as a result of that work, the vast majority are British and live locally.
We have one of the best pay and benefits packages in the industry, and we pay the same rate whether our colleagues are British or from the EU.
