The Business Secretary "supports" government policy, a Downing Street has said, after Vince Cable suggested that the Conservative Party were doing "a great deal of damage" on their position on immigration. The No 10 source said:
The PM set out his view on EU migration in the FT article and, on Friday, in Brussels. We need to learn the lessons from Labour's mistakes, to put in place more robust transitional controls in future and, in the meantime, to make sure people can come here to work but not just to claim benefits.'
Vince [Cable] is a member of the government and supports government policy. The words he chooses to do that are up to him.
