Minister for Defence Personnel, Welfare and Veterans, Anna Soubry has said some people she saw with concerns about immigration were "frankly racist":
– Anna Soubry
When you make the case with people who come and see me in my constituency surgery who say I'm really worried about immigration. You say really, why?
This is Broxtowe. We don't have a problem with immigrants
When you explain all that to them they get it. Not all of it.
Some people have prejudices, some people are frankly racist, but there are many who just don't know the argument.
