Help

David Cameron has dismissed criticism from Vince Cable, who said the prime minister's immigration speech was "very unwise", because it risked inflaming extremism.

Mr Cable also said that the speech's reference to cap immigrant numbers to "tens of thousands of immigrants", rather than hundreds of thousands, was a Conservative not Liberal Democrat policy, and not part of the coalition agreement.

Mr Cameron said the policy had been agreed by both parties.
