A Conservative pledge to reduce net migration "is for the end of parliament", the party's chairman has said.

Latest figures show migration increased to 212,000 in the year to September 2013, pushing it further away from the government's target of less than 100,000.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show Grant Shapps insisted there was still time "to bring numbers down".
