The Conservative party's new immigration minister James Brokenshire is expected to accuse the middle classes of befitting from the arrival of foreign workers into the UK in a speech today.
"For too long, the benefits of immigration went to employers who wanted an easy supply of cheap labour, or to the wealthy metropolitan elite who wanted cheap tradesmen and services – but not to the ordinary, hard-working people of this country," Mr Brokenshire is set to say.
"We are changing that and building a system that benefits all."
